What is the GIE SESAM-Vitale?

I have a project, how can contacting the GIE SESAM-Vitale be of use to me?

As a key contact for manufacturers supplying solutions to healthcare professionals, the GIE SESAM-Vitale supports you on a daily basis, as a player in eHealth, to maintain existing solutions and develop new ones.

The GIE SESAM-Vitale currently supports nearly 600 manufacturers. Initially focused on billing and teleservices, these players are now offering new services that are aimed not only at healthcare professionals but also at insured/patients, particularly in the form of mobile apps or connected objects.

As soon as the project is launched, the GIE SESAM-Vitale offers guidance: Introduction to the ecosystem, the market, the various players, the service roadmaps and the practical procedures for integrating a new service and getting your solution listed.

The GIE SESAM-Vitale gives you access to the Espace Industriels which provides you with all the information, service integration specifications, and any software components or sample code required to implement a new service.

Throughout your solution's design and development phase, the GIE SESAM-Vitale provides you with support for services and its expertise in Health Professionals' Information Systems.
