eHealth: oasis or mirage for our health systems?

The big debates of eHealth University

Hosted by Lionel Buannic, moderator

The French health system is facing unprecedented challenges. Primary care is on the verge of exploding, and secondary care is virtually non-existent for some French people (some regions have no specialists – dermatologists, cardiologists, etc.). The hospital system is also in crisis, with saturated accident and emergency departments, staff shortages, and the massive departure of key personnel.

Meanwhile, significant resources are being devoted to the development of eHealth, with considerable reaching out to citizens on the subject, as was the case for the “Mon Espace Santé” website, for example.

The massive introduction of digital services and tools in the health system is often presented as the game changer that will enable a revolutionary adaptation to a new demographic and epidemiological situation (ageing populations, chronic and environmental diseases).

Is this discourse illusory, given the needs and challenges to adapt our health systems? Or, on the contrary, is it a real coherent vision, an “oasis” of greenery in a future that seems likely to present more and more economic and ecological challenges, that will effectively allow us, before long (but in just how long?), to treat the new health needs of an evolving population, thanks to the technologies developed.
  • If so, why haven't we managed to get there yet?
  • Which tools and methods are the most suitable for "guiding" the deployment of these technologies and ensure they match the needs of the population?
  • How can these technological services be deployed effectively on a large scale?
  • How can we get the public on board? And the professionals?
  • And finally, how can we ensure that this oasis does not become a jungle?
