City Healthcare: the CPTS “in the front row” to develop digital health

For its 7th edition, the City Healthcare exhibition-conference dedicated to healthcare innovation, focuses on digital healthcare in and for territories. An appointment set for October 5 and 6 in Nancy with which the Concours pluripro and Egora have joined forces.

“It is in the territories that we invent, that we experiment”, launches Isabelle Margo, founder of the City Healthcare conference-show. And it is for this reason that his team will bring together more than 130 professionals from the health sector – health professionals, trainers, start-ups, institutions, coordinators… in Nancy on October 5 and 6 to exchange and debate challenges, opportunities, wealth, but also the pitfalls of “digital health in the territories”.

“Every area of ​​our daily lives is being transformed by digital – the way we listen to music, how we book travel…and digital is no exception.points out Pr Antoine Tesnière, president of the 2022 edition of City Healthcare. We have seen in all areas to what extent it transforms uses. But the particularities of health are that the State has advanced regulation of this sector and also that it includes a whole chain of essential actors to think about transformation, hence the challenge of creating an ecosystem, to bring these professionals together at a major event. Digital is not just about installing computers, using apps, it’s a “weapon”, an additional tool to improve patient care, whether to speed up a care pathway or improve a diagnosis” .

“We’ve been waiting for this promise of a ‘digital health revolution’ for a long time, but it’s not happening because digital health solutions and apps aren’t widely adopted yet!”adds Dr. Benoît Tyl, cardiologist, medical advisor to Bayer’s digital division, At City Healthcare, this is the first time that we will bring together the entire digital health ecosystem in France, namely patients, doctors, health authorities, organizations responsible for reimbursement and manufacturers. to try to make those promises a reality”.

Field contact and detailed analysis

“The CPTS are at the forefront of developing digital health, highlighting them in this show is, for me, obviouspoints out Antoine Tesnière. CPTS professionals have field contact with patients and a detailed analysis of the territory’s needs in terms of health. It is from the understanding of these issues and these problems that ideas are born and that innovation is born”.

Congress partner, Pluripro competition recommend that you attend the CPTS-forum, which will be held on Wednesday, October 5 and in which the ten CPTS of the Grand Est will participate. An event moderated by Karen Ramsay, Editor-in-Chief of Pluripro competition and Egora-the doctor’s panorama, in partnership with Dr Christophe Rohrbach:

6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.: “The problem of access to unscheduled care” seen by the professionals of the CPTS of the Plaine des Vosges, CPTS of Barrois, CPTS of Nancy, CPTS of South Toulois, CPTS of Grand Douai and “The problem of access to unscheduled care” seen by the ARS Grand Est and the CPAMs 54.

– 7:15 p.m. to 8 p.m.: Experiment feedback CPTS of the Plaine des Vosges, Nancy, Sud Toulois, Barrois, Grand Douai and “Unscheduled Care and their inclusion in the regional e-pathway platform Parceo”

– From 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.: “Telemedicine at the service of access to unscheduled care and summary”

Beyond this CPTS forum, the themes that will be highlighted:

• Deployment policies at regional, departmental, metropolitan and communal levels? what findings?
• Is the benefit for patients of the measures taken quantifiable and measurable?
• Is digital health, a factor of innovation, combined with economic attractiveness?
• What are the solutions developed by health professionals in these same territories.

Also of note, the medical symposium “Towards evidence-based digital health” dedicated to remote monitoring in heart failure and the four Think Tank workshops on e-health innovation to find “How to go further in ecosystems ?”

Prof. Antoine Tesnière, Director of ParisSanté Campuspresident of the 2022 edition of City Healtcare: “There is a wealth of innovation in all territories”
What is the role of PariSanté Campus in City Healthcare?

One of the challenges of PariSanté Campus, a unique place that brings together the actors of the French digital sector, is to succeed in disseminating a vision of the ecosystem, to create spaces for meetings, exchanges and work , to accelerate the coordination and development of digital tools… All this can be found in this event. Our role will be to decline this global and interdisciplinary dimension in all the subjects that will be addressed during the congress and to understand how this vision can bring new and more relevant answers, including the point of view of industrialists, patients, health professionals, regulators… to simply make it a national collaborative network. More personally, as a healthcare professional (Antoine Tesnière is an anesthetist-resuscitator [NDLR] ) and player in the health system, I have a good knowledge of e-health. And yet, but what I find extremely rich in this type of event is to see how each territory develops innovative solutions to solve, with local actors, problems that we find, more or to a lesser extent, in the other regions. PariSanté Campus is also there to promote these regional dynamics in order to benefit everyone. In the Grand Est, where CityHealthcare is taking place this year, we find all this wealth and diversity of innovations.

In your opinion, in terms of health prevention, is digital technology essential?
Prevention is an important and very broad issue. There is a range of remote tracking and personalized tracking devices that can fuel prevention strategies. Digital tools can thus be used to monitor a certain number of physiological parameters: weight, vital signs… And artificial intelligence algorithms are now able to determine the appearance and therefore, for example, on a connected mirror, to check the evolution of a spot or moles and to determine signs or symptoms of disease that is not yet visible. There are also all the connected objects that promote sport, activity, well-being and hygiene and dietary rules. There are still many models under development where digital will play a central role.

Are patients ready for all these technologies?
When we talk about prevention, we’re talking more about citizens than patients… so it’s much broader. We work with user associations, which show an appetite for these devices. Digital is a lever for transforming the health system, which will make it clearer, more understandable or more personalized. We see through tools and apps that everyone can use to play sports, without specifically talking about care or prevention, that the population is ready for these developments. Afterwards, it will be a choice: there is no question of imposing any surveillance tool! All the ethical issues surrounding the use of digital technology must of course be taken into account.

What do you remember from the projects presented at the Tremplins de la e-santé?
I see a great dynamism of innovation through all the projects submitted. This testifies to the wealth of innovation in each of the territories. The Grand Est has equipped itself with impressive tools and actors to bring out these innovations, whether in terms of care pathways, digital innovations or others. We have a desire to support these innovative tools.

How are the CPTS at the forefront of developing digital health?
For me it is obvious. They have field contact with patients and have a detailed analysis of the needs of the territory in terms of health. It is from understanding these issues and problems that ideas are born and innovation is born. We must start from this crucible. The interest of the CPTS is to bring together health professionals and imagine solutions together to improve the functioning of a community and propose innovations that can go beyond the simple local framework.

Let’s talk about unscheduled care. What is the role of digital?
At all levels, digital will bring benefits! When we know that we are now able to monitor people with heart failure remotely, with the aim of anticipating rehospitalizations, this shows that we can provide a service to both patients and structures thanks to digital technology. . It is an added value to be able to detect weak signals from a patient and to adapt his treatment before he needs to go to the hospital! Finally, another advantage of digital technology: unscheduled care structures receive a large number of patients that they do not monitor for the rest of the year and for whom they do not have medical information. The sharing of information through My Health Space will make it possible to have information shared, on a national and even European scale soon. If a diabetic person travels far from home and experiences hypoglycemia when leaving an airplane, we will know what treatment they need thanks to the shared data. France is one of the leaders of this reflection.
