Launch of the European Joint Action on Patient Registries
Tuesday 12 June 2012
On 12-13 June 2012, the European Commission and representatives of 11 EU Member States gathered in Brussels to launch the Joint Action (JA) on Patient Registries.
The aim of this JA is to support Member States in developing comparable and coherent patient registries in important fields such as chronic diseases, rare diseases and medical technology. This should rationalise and harmonise the development and governance of patient registries, thus enabling analyses of secondary data for public health and research purposes.
