Subject: VPH Newsletter: Sept 2022

A range of authors across academia and industry, representing both the VPHi and the Avicenna Alliance, have produced a new white paper on potential of the use of computer modelling and simulation in healthcare, with a particular focus on the role of Artificial Intelligence, that is intended to stimulate policy making, regulatory thinking and research strategies in this exciting space.
On 12 September 2022, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) published its draft opinion on the European Health Data Space (EHDS)
On 12-13 December 2022, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations will hold a multi-stakeholder workshop focusing on the use of Digital Health Technologies in drug development and the related outcomes for patients.
At the event, the Presidency of the Council, EU Health Ministers, high-level EU officials as well as representatives from Switzerland, Norway, and Iceland gathered to discuss a series of issues related to EU health policies. Particular emphasis has been put on oncology and the fight against cancer.
The launch of this multi-stakeholder framework - The CODE-EHR Minimum Standards Framework - aims at improving clinical research using real-world data.

After 4 years, the VPH Conference was held as a physical event in Porto (Portugal) from the 6th to the 9th of September.
As parallel activities just before and after the VPH2022 conference, 4 interesting workshops took place organised by members of our community.
During the opening ceremony of the VPH conference, a lecture-performance featured physiologically based dancing digital twins. This could lay the basis for a new patient-centric and preventive healthcare system.
Using in silico trials based on mechanistic models, the jinkō platform predicts clinical outcomes before trials in human subjects.
