Evaluate your solution’s maturity

eHealth Doctrine Self-Evaluation

What is the eHealth doctrine?

Implemented as part of the roadmap for digital healthcare, the digital healthcare’s doctrine presents the levers provided by the State to regulate the e-health ecosystem.

The doctrine sets the technical and urbanization framework within which all digital health players must operate by 2025.

Its goal is to support the computerization of healthcare structures and encourage innovation.

The Convergence platform supports you in developing your business and defining your plan for compliance with regulations specific to the e-health sector.

To this end, the platform is organized around two tracks:

  • digital health doctrine ;
  • My health space.

Each of these paths is broken down into steps:

  • doctrine is divided into 4 steps: Evaluation and projection socles , Teleconsultation, teleexpertise, telecare;
  • My Health Space is divided into 2 steps: referencing without data exchange and referencing with data exchange.

The procedures include questionnaires which, once completed, will enable you to assess the maturity and/or compliance of your products with the digital health doctrine, or the assessments required for My Health Space registration.

The first step in completing the platform is to identify a manager who will oversee the completion operations. This person can then make an inventory of the products to be included in the scope of data entry, and list the resources to be mobilized: product managers, technical and functional experts, etc. Despite efforts to contextualize the questions, knowledge of healthcare IS interoperability, security and the ambitions of the doctrine of digital health is a prerequisite.

The questionnaires can then be read in groups. Based on the completion of an initial product, the reading of the questionnaires enables the identification of subjects that have been mastered, as well as those that require further investigation.

The pilot can then propose regular meetings with all product managers to monitor the progress of data entry, guarantee the consistency of responses and share expert feedback.
