What is the Délégation ministérielle au Numérique en Santé (DNS)?

The Ministerial Delegation for eHealth (DNS) is responsible for steering all eHealth transformation projects.

The DNS reports directly to the Minister of Health. It closely oversees the Agence du Numérique en Santé ("ANS").

To bring all the stakeholders on board, the major pillars of eHealth policy are debated by the eHealth Council. The delegation also seeks advice from an ethics unit to ensure that its actions are consistent with humanist values and to interface with European and international initiatives relating to eHealth. The technical doctrine of the eHealth roadmap and the associated architecture diagram are updated regularly.

The DNS is not the preferred contact for project developers. The role of the DNS is to steer public policy, not to provide individualised support. G_NIUS will help you find the right people to meet your needs.

At what stage of my project should I contact them?
