eHealth Acceleration Strategy

As part of the "France Relance" recovery plan and the Future Investment Programme (PIA4), the Government is launching an eHealth acceleration strategy.
Announced in January 2021, this five-year strategy involves the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Recovery, the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, and the General Secretariat for Investment (SGPI).

A strategy to prepare for the future and make France a leader in eHealth.

As part of an approach to mobilise all stakeholders in the eHealth sector, this proactive acceleration strategy aims to:

  • Encourage a transition from curative, siloed medicine to a more preventive, predictive and personalised approach
  • Promote the emergence of a major eHealth ecosystem in France, capable of competing in a competitive global market
  • Process health data in a secure and ethical manner, without depending entirely on a few players that are subject to regulations less protective of personal data

Qu'est ce que la Stratégie d'Accélération Santé Numérique

Encourage the emergence of innovative solutions in France and support the economy with strong cost-effective value propositions for the benefit of the general population and patients

Setting up a foundational strategy

The eHealth strategy also reflects an ambition to come up with an effective response to the challenges of the sector while accelerating the shift towards so-called “5P” medicine: personalised, preventive, predictive, participatory and pragmatic (i.e. evidence-based). This transformation of eHealth must be carried out for the benefit of the general population and that of patients.

Launch of a public consultation

A broad public consultation allowed the ecosystem to express its expectations and priorities. This feedback is making it possible to specify and prioritize the content of the acceleration strategy, and also help come up with future calls for projects to be deployed quickly.

Creating different actions to serve the strategy

A CEI is open until 16 June 2021 with the goal of informing the construction of the strategy by proposing both finance-ready projects and more prospective projects likely to be supported in future calls for projects. The results of the CEI will provide the most comprehensive vision possible to configure future national support schemes for the next five years.
