The Hospital Digital Standardisation Programme (HOP'EN) is the strategic action plan for hospital information systems for the period 2019-2023.

Getting started

The Hospital Digital Standardisation Programme (HOP'EN) sets the strategic action plan for hospital information systems for the production of care over a five-year period, in line with the digital hospital programme.

The HOP’EN programme is broken down into an action plan, comprising seven complementary operational tools and 21 operational commitments that will enable establishments to achieve basic maturity and meet these new ambitions over the next five years.

HOP'EN is meant to make it possible to:

  • Capitalise on and continue the efforts undertaken within the framework of the Digital Hospital programme;
  • Contribute to the target architecture of health information systems, in particular by promoting the integration of third-party digital services from the future service package through programming interfaces (APIs) and contextual calls;
  • Strengthen the structuring of hospital data to facilitate sharing;
  • Develop and simplify the links between hospitals and their partners, in particular cities and the social care sector, through the deployment and use of core services (MSSanté and the Shared Medical Record) and other regional or national tools (available via the e-Treatment programme in particular);
  • Accelerate the digital transformation of healthcare facilities to bring hospitals closer to their patients by offering appropriate, secure digital services (booking appointments, online payment, etc.) in conjunction with the Health Data Personal Space (ENS).
  • The objective is to harmonise the digital services of healthcare facilities within a given region so that the patient's and health professionals' journey from one facility to another is made easier and each patient benefits from the same level of services.
