DHE is the European Platform for citizen-Patients’ Organisations, Science and Industry, an independent, not-for-profit, partnership-based multi-stakeholder organisation founded in 1994 and based in Brussels, Belgium. The old legal structure was closed 2017, and DHE 2.0 revealed. Its mission is to provide a consensus/value-driven sustainable multi-stakeholder framework on innovations until their implementation in society. Through novel multi-sectorial knowledge management and exchange,

DHE provides equally-weighted outcomes among all members of a knowledge chain that includes for example; citizens, patients, scientists, innovators, payers, and care providers. In this context, we promote across Europe the emergence of cutting-edge health/bio medicine related solutions such as for improved awareness/coaching and patient self-care, as well as for health information & data management.

As DHE was the first to talk about HTA later became EuNeTHA, Now we are the first to improve Data quality and liability management, stopping Anonymisation as a relic of the past, replacing it with a shared Intellectual Property (IP) solution of the common knowledge chain.

By Block chain technology, the IoT and Real time access to the data source, the  augmented Artificial Intelligence (AI) decision making will be the Research and Development Goals in the upcoming years with our members.

As trusted partner assessing the internal Communication and data governance processes ongoing  improving outcomes.

Below you will find your ecosystem in an old smoke-pipe approach with the value proposal as needed to interact with the unsustainable now and past structures to enable implementation of change management.
