These areas are: 1) rules on the provision of healthcare in the Member States; 2) protection of personal data in healthcare provision and medical research; 3) control and use of non-personal data and 4) the regulatory framework on AI. The article provides the analysis and comparision of these areas to submit the systemized view on causes and consequences of the identified issues and to suggest the vision of the further legislative process related to the European health data space.
