9:30 – Digital Health Strategy and Investment in France 

France has defined a new digital health strategy which has been implemented these last 18 months. A new model of architecture and the roles of the policy-makers from one side and of the industry from another side have been clearly defined in order to deliver digital health services to the French 65+m population such as the national identifier, the personal health record, a new set of standards and norms, the secured messaging with health professionals, the data sharing platform, a digital health apps wallet, etc. In 2021, the French government has announced a massive investment plan in digital health. And in 2022, France will ensure the  Presidency of the EU council. This keynote session will be the opportunity to understand what is the French strategic vision, what are the opportunities of all digital health stakeholders and what are the plans for the 2022 EU Presidency.

  • Moderator : Julien Venne, Board Director at Digital Health Society and ECHAlliance – France
  • Isabelle Zablit-Schmitz, International Director and eHealth Europe at the Ministry of Health in France
