The objective is to centralise the user's/patient's appointments in their Health Data Personal Space (ENS), drawing from the various existing and future systems and appointment platforms.
To assist the users/general public, as part of the implementation of the Health Data Personal Space (ENS), a basic calendar service is planned for the user. The objective is to centralise the user's/patient's appointments in their Mon Espace Santé, drawing from the various existing and future IT systems and appointment platforms.
Within the framework of the coordination tools (e-Treatment program), calendar sharing is provided for in the digital coordination service package, in two ways:
- Management of future events relating to the user’s care
- Combining professionals' calendars to facilitate the organisation of care.
Finally, it is also planned, as part of the Care Access Service project (measure 26 of the Ségur Plan), to provide a digital platform for sharing the unfilled care time slots of health professionals and facilities, and more broadly to provide an aggregator for consolidating all available slots from professionals’ various digital tools (calendars, etc.) and online appointment platforms (which will be visible to health professionals and the general public at a later date). The objective is to improve patient referrals in a context of city/hospital coordination.
The body of literature that has already been produced by the ANS on the subject of interoperability is now available for your perusal.
The planned timeframe for the implementation of this shared calendar brick is 2021/2022.
Work has begun within the framework of the Care Access Service to specify the technical and functional conditions.
Body of literature
The Agence du Numérique en Santé (ANS) has made available a section dedicated to the management of shared calendars in the interoperability framework for health IT systems (CI-SIS)
The goal of this body of literature is to provide a framework for the implementation of a shared calendar management mechanism in the fields of health, medical and social care as well as in medical administration, in order to assess its interoperability needs and how those needs can be addressed.
The ANS has made available a body of literature as part of the interoperability framework for health IT systems (CI-SIS) and a section dedicated to the management of shared calendars.
Their purpose is to enable the management of resources (people, places or objects) and the availability of those resources, calendar viewing and syncing, and appointment-making.
