statement on artificial intelligence


EANA position on artificial intelligence in the health sector




At its meeting on November 30th, 2018 in Luxembourg, EANA (European Working Group of Practitioners and Specialists in Free Practice) has agreed on the following elements:




Artificial intelligence is neither a threat nor the absolute panacea, but certainly constitutes a major development of our activity. It is an additional technology at the service of patients to provide them quickly with quality medical information, thereby giving them the necessary elements to control their health.




The physician must support the responsible attitude and the medical competence of the patient.




Initial and continuous training of physicians must be adapted rapidly to allow optimal use of the tools of artificial intelligence and to help manage the evolution of medical progress.




Physicians will be able to use artificial intelligence without delay as a technical expert support tool, thereby giving them the time necessary for collaborative work and relations with their patients on an individual level.




EANA recommends utmost vigilance as of now to the institutions in the evaluation of the care needs to train the health professionals as closely as possible to the needs of the population.

au moyen de l’interdisciplinarité, de l’interprofessionalité et de la transversalité

• La confiance des professionnels de santé exige la création d’un modèle économique

Task delegation in private health care


The EANA’s position on task delegation in private health care






During its meeting held on June 15, 2018, in Berlin, the EANA (European Association of Private Health Care) acknowledged the following elements:




The establishment of task delegation between doctors and health care professionals first requires the harmonization across Europe:




1.     professional training, the only way to guarantee high-quality health care;




2.     objectives for this task delegation;




3.     legislation respecting each national sovereignty;




4.     device assessment.




The EANA, which represents European private practitioners, requests that the notion of task delegation coordination between doctors and other health professionals is expressed explicitly, for two key reasons:




1.     The implementation of clear processes for all participants is a way of guaranteeing quality and relevance of health care and this guarantee must be imposed on all doctors of health care professionals, with a particular aim of reducing the occurrence of undesirable incidents;




2.     The implementation of clear processes for all participants protects both the doctor and the health care professionals in any event in which responsibility is sought.




Hence, any task delegation between doctors and health care professionals must be done in respect of the practitioners and in accordance with their representative organizations.




Furthermore, it is imperative for this coordination of the task delegation between doctors and health care professions respects the health care systems in place in each country, encompassing all specificities and usual procedures.
