Health Pro Authentication (Pro Santé Connect)

Referential for digital identification

What is Pro Santé Connect?

Pro Santé Connect is the provider of health professionals ID in France. It’s a free, standard service (OpenID protocol) developed and managed by the ANS.

With Pro Santé Connect, health professionals listed in the Health Directory (Annuaire Santé) can authenticate themselves in a simple, secured and unified manner. They may log in to digital health services and navigate seamlessly from one to another.

As of January 2023, Pro Santé Connect authentication will be compulsory for all digital health services deemed “sensitive” (in the sense defined by the PGSSI-S guidelines). Delegating your service authentications to the ANS brings you the image of trust and security associated with Pro Santé Connect, while remaining conform to regulatory requirements.
