This Committee, which is part of the Government’s digital transition policy, aims to define the main directions in the field of digital health. It is made up of representatives of health professionals, health institutions, public and private payers and representatives of the Government.

On this occasion, the Minister-Counselor reiterated the Government’s wish to initiate concrete actions in the field of e-health, such as the Physicians’ Health Yearbook, secure medical messaging or making appointments online.

He stressed that the key to the success of the e-health development project lies in the commitment of all health actors while keeping the patient at the heart of the reflection. The work of the Steering Committee, which will lead to the implementation of the first e-health projects in 2019, was presented to the members who validated them.
