e-CPS is a means of electronic authentication for healthcare professionals.

Getting started

e-CPS is a means of electronic authentication for healthcare professionals.

It offers strong authentication on mobile devices.

e-CPS is based on Pro Santé Connect, the centralising authority for identity providers.

Pro Santé Connect is a centralising authority for identity providers based on the OpenID Connect standard. Service providers who integrate it can thus retrieve the person's government-recorded identity as well as their sector-specific identity (profession, etc.), and base certain qualification decisions on these characteristics.

A professional user, meanwhile, can authenticate their identity electronically on e-CPS-compatible services from their mobile phone. This is essential for those who do not have a CPS card (ID for healthcare professionals), and more convenient for those who want to log in to their services while on the go.

Integrating e-CPS into your apps guarantees that you will have an authentication system that complies with regulations at all times, and is based on enforceable data.

In practice

Request your own connection to the testing/sandbox environment. First you need to request an account.

When ?

Both new projects and existing tools can connect to Pro Santé Connect.

The technical connection can be completed within 24 to 48 hours. The functional connection takes an average of 2 months.
