eHealth doctrine self-evaluation

Set out your own roadmap to comply with the eHealth doctrine standards

What is the eHealth doctrine self-evaluation?

Whether you are an established company or a newcomer to the eHealth sector, self-evaluation helps you define the maturity level of your software solution, based on the criteria set out in the French eHealth doctrine, around 3 main themes: urbanisation, interoperability and security.

Your self-evaluation results will forecast a timeline and deadlines to help you reach the level recommended by the doctrine.

You can also check your product meets the requirement framework for telehealth (télésanté) solutions, with self-evaluations covering 3 domains: teleconsultation, tele-expertise and telecare.

Filling these self-evaluation questionnaires for your products will guarantee you meet state-of-the-art standards of good practice and participate in the development of eHealth.
