The HealthData@PT − Setting up a Health Data Access Body in Portugal − action aims to establish the national infrastructure, network and the foundational elements necessary to ensure secure access and use of health data for the purposes of research, medical innovation and health policymaking (secondary use of health data). Additionally, HealthData@PT seeks to provide tools to improve the overall quality of health data for secondary use. 

Through its concerted efforts, HealthData@PT aims to prepare the national ecosystem for the intra- and cross-border secondary use of health data, with the main goal of improving therapeutic outcomes and strengthening the healthcare system. The establishment of these national foundations is crucial for ensuring the successful future integration of Portugal into cross-border infrastructures, such as HealthData@EU. 

This action will advance the technical implementation of the Health Data Access Body in Portugal, crucial for the future national integration into the HealthData@EU infrastructure for the cross-border sharing of electronic health data.

This four-year initiative was approved by the European Commission in the scope of the EU4Health programme 2021–2027, and started officially in November of 2023.
