The aim of the “Links Up” European project is to create links to stimulate the growth of startups in the eHealth and eTourism sectors in the region of South-West Europe. It is steered by the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion and has been accepted to participate in the European regional cooperation programme Interreg Sudoe. Lead: Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion Partners: Fundació Balear d’Innovació i Tecnologia – FBIT (Balearic Islands Foundation for Innovation and Technology) Agencia para la Competitividad de la Empresa (Catalonia Agency for Business Competitiveness) Castres-Mazamet Technopole (Occitania Region) Fundación Universidad Empresa (Murcia University-Business Foundation) Centro de Inovação Empresarial da Beira Interior (Beira Interior Centre for Business Innovation, Portugal) Associated partner: MADEELI (Occitania Regional Agency for Economic Development, Export and Innovation) One of the objectives will be to set up an accelerator programme, for this purpose an Open Innovation session will be held during the eHealth Summer University. The aim will be to allow around twenty young and innovative eHealth companies from France, Spain and Portugal to talk about what they do and to discuss with various large organisations (IBM, EDF, Harmonie Mutuelle, Pierre Fabre Laboratories, Blue-Channel) with a view to igniting synergies before a possible next step of more intensive coaching.
Hosted by Eric Phelippeau, President of the FNIM (French National Federation for Medical Information) What do we learn from patients in what they say, express, write? Patients’ accounts abound on the Internet and can be seen not only as vectors of knowledge about the illness they have to live with every day, but also about their treatment, when it stops, any side effects there may be, the doctor-patient relationship, the level of care, the healthcare system in general, etc. How can this unstructured data be analysed? How can we give form to such experiential knowledge? How can we use it to improve care for patients?

Hosted by Christophe Biondini, Vice-President of the FORMATICSanté Association In the context of the rollout of eHealth, a growing number of patients are benefitting from digital solutions as a part of their healthcare pathway. Every day sees the arrival of new digital solutions to: inform users and allow patients to benefit from therapeutic education programmes: web sites, serious games, . . . improve ambulatory care, facilitate telemonitoring in the home for patients suffering from chronic illness, allow patients to communicate and share their experience through patient communities, . . . How can we let a maximum number of people take advantage of these new services and help them to use them from day to day? How can we encourage patients to become more vigilant in order to limit as far as possible the risks linked to the virtualisation of their personal data?
Elie Lobel, CEO of Orange Healthcare In order to meet the societal and demographic challenges it is faced with, our healthcare system must resolutely put the care pathway at the heart of its transformation. We must collectively move from a healthcare system historically focused on “acute” care towards a system that is tailored to follow long care paths and that puts the dimension of prevention in its rightful place. Digital tools claim to bring new solutions to address these challenges by facilitating interactions between stakeholders, allowing the hospital to step outside its walls, and increasingly empowering patients to become involved in their care process. Can these tools improve the service provided to patients in the long term and help to make the healthcare system more efficient? We will draw upon international examples to get a clearer picture of what this digital transformation entails.

Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist At a time when the hospital of tomorrow is taking shape as a hybrid structure, firmly positioned in the Region as the reference for healthcare and proposing an innovative offer of digital services, particular attention is being paid to the integration of digital innovation into digitised patient pathways. This discussion will be an opportunity to put the focus back onto the hospital, which was a pioneer in this field, allowing us to learn important lessons from past experience and imagine together the applications of tomorrow.
Hosted by Martin Venzal, journalist Connected objects represent a tremendous opportunity for healthcare establishments. It is however essential, if they are to be creators of value, that they be accompanied with relevant services that can be integrated easily into the daily work of the healthcare teams. Collaboration between industrial stakeholders and healthcare professionals, in a spirit of co-creation, is therefore vital to achieve this goal. This workshop, hosted by Jean-Sébastien Moinier, Director of the Tarkett FloorInMotion Business Unit, will be an opportunity to present the principles and virtues of the “Design thinking” approach and will be illustrated by the experiences of each participant.
Moderated by Hervé Pingaud, teacher at ISIS school. Using digital tools to enhance patient-centered coordination of the global care process seems to a golden path to better effeciency and outcomes. Reality might tell a more complex story. To achieve such a goal, there are strong requirements: especially patient’s engagement and organizationnal adjustments.

Today they play the role of information facilitator, allowing professionals to communicate with each other, get quick answers and use new tools for verification, monitoring and follow-up. With regard to the sensitive nature of the data exchanged: Which legal rules apply? What are the risks? What are the liabilites? Which practical solutions exist to take advantage of these tools?
The French national programme ETAPES (Telemedicine Experiments for the Improvement of Healthcare Pathways), also referred to as “Article 36” in reference to the French Social Security Finance Act of 2014, is an example of disruptive innovation in the organisation of healthcare. This programme encourages the deployment of telemonitoring by, in particular, subsidising for their activity and performance healthcare professionals and industrial stakeholders involved in the care pathway for the main categories of chronic conditions. This is your chance to find out more about what you need to do to get started with this innovative activity, allowing your patients to benefit from optimised care and your establishment or firm to acquire an additional subsidised activity. Dr Olivier Vallet, the Deputy Director General of Marie Lannelongue Hospital, will share with us his vision of this digital and organisational innovation. Sebastien Woynar, MD, DrPH, CEO of CDM e-Health and Director of the Chronic Care Management and eHealth programme with Air Liquide Healthcare, will look at practical aspects of Air Liquide Healthcare’s Chronic Care Connect programme.
Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist Chronic illness or a temporary or lasting handicap shouldn’t make our fellow citizens “sub-citizens”. The digital revolution, whether during the acute phases of treatment or during the prevention or support phases for patients or people suffering from full or partial loss of autonomy, is one of the solutions providing hope for the future. The aim of this session is to confront needs and solutions, to turn ideas into reality, to go from concept to application and duplication, to reveal markets and find solutions, so that digital technology, so present in our daily lives, can also be there in those moments in life when physical or psychological symptoms appear, when illness strikes and takes over our whole being.

Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist The French Patients’ Rights and Quality of Care Act of March 4th 2002 enacted patients’ access to their health data. But what really happens in practice? Are patients aware of this right ? What happens when they want to assert it and why would they want to (second medical opinion, participation in medical research, . . .) ? Technical solutions to exchange, collect and analyse patient data are developing very rapidly (connected objects, Big Data, social networks, . . .), but at the same time, the question of patients’ access to their data is becoming more complex. But who do patients really want to share their personal information with? For what reasons? What are their motivations? In this context, the eHealth Summer University wanted to let patients have their say and invited the Healthcare Data Institute (HDI), which is looking into how patients can take back control of their data and possible resulting benefits, to discuss with the patients themselves.
Hosted by Martin Venzal, journalist The central role played by information systems in the operation of hospitals was sadly made only too clear in the news recently when a computer virus locked out entire establishments in the United Kingdom. The rapid spread of connected medical devices also highlights the need to understand the issues involved concerning security and validation, going beyond the purely clinical aspects as is currently the case.
Session 1: Digital simulation for the training of healthcare professionals Virtual consultations, real-time 3D simulators, mixed or virtual reality, the teams of SimforHealth propose immersive and interactive solutions for initial and ongoing training in healthcare. Developed by SimforHealth, MedicActiV is the first digital simulation platform to propose virtual clinical cases for training purposes. They allow healthcare professionals to acquire new knowledge in initial or further training and also allow healthcare education establishments to create and publish their own clinical cases. Medical teams and SimforHealth’s simulation experts have already trained over 30,000 healthcare professionals in the world, committed to applying the ethical principle “Never the first time on a patient”. Session 2: Simulation in healthcare: what role can it play in the initial and continuing training of healthcare professionals?
Opening conference Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist. Technology for medical and health applications has traditionally followed a “top down” paradigm where highly specific products are sold to a few key customers (e.g., physicians, hospital administrators, care providers) who eventually bring the technology to patients through their professional practices. In this approach, a few privileged customers receive expensive technology, and the benefits “trickle down” to the everyday people through the formal health care system. The business model for medical technology companies is “sell a few, charge a lot.” But modern health care practices are now adopting a culture of partnership between physician and patient, where the patient and stakeholders are empowered to play a greater role in maintaining their health. A new paradigm is emerging where technology is developed to enable all stakeholders (patients, family, friends, community, caregivers, providers, and professionals) become partners in the health care ecosystem. These low cost, relatively easy to use technologies will allow us to monitor, track, share, and understand our health, leading to more preventative and proactive health activities. This “bottom up” approach has the potential to bring a much more effective health ecosystem, as well as deliver highly innovative products to the health and... Read More

Humanitarian initiatives enter the digital age at a time when more than 125 million women, men and children in the world need humanitarian aid in 2016. All of the stakeholders concerned – international, UN, governmental and non-governmental, private and industrial – are facing new challenges to bring help and care to those who need it the most, namely women and children. New technology, mobile phones, the Internet are shortening times and distances to act faster and more efficiently. At the 2017 eHealth Summer University, the “Humanitarian initiatives” session will bring together healthcare professionals, NGOs, banks and insurance companies, and new technologies to merge their expertise and innovative solutions and continue to save more lives.
Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist Will eHealth transform the humanitarian sector ? The new information and communication technologies are radically changing the rollout, management and monitoring of healthcare projects run by humanitarian organisations to help the populations of developing countries. They are revolutionising the relationships between these stakeholders and their partners and beneficiaries, changing the way they work and empowering local communities with new enhanced means for action. In this area, French organisations are clearly lagging behind in comparison with their Anglo-American counterparts. This discussion will be an opportunity to hear what the main players in this field can tell us about the projects currently under way and the opportunities opened up by eHealth.
Animated by Dr. Antonio GUELL Frailty is a clinical syndrome defined by a loss of adaptive reserves due to ageing and chronic illness and which results in a high risk of dependence, hospital stays, going into a home and mortality. This notion of frailty raises therefore important economic and societal challenges for our healthcare system. The frailty syndrome is considered to be a potentially reversible state – if it is identified and targeted actions addressing the causes are applied, the frail person will be able to recover to become pre-frail or even non-frail again. For this reason, in the current context of an ageing population, integrating the assessment and monitoring of frailty of the elderly into clinical practice will be a major issue for public health over the coming years. The aim of this round table, through testimonies and expertise, is to get a practical overview of frailty assessment and monitoring tools in clinical practice and to see to what extent they can be implemented in the person’s home by the use of information and communication technology.
Hosted by Lionel REICHARDT & Annick VALENTIN-SMITH 10:30 10:55 Madeleine Lesage The human-animal relationship: stakes and challenges Since the domestication process began, the mainly humancentric human-animal relationship, has allowed societies to take advantage of the different services offered by animals. However, if the “animal question” is today more than ever in the public eye, it still remains fragmented between different approaches and its future is uncertain: will it manage to become a game changer in French society? Will the discussions and its handling be peaceful or conflictual? The conference will look at each of these aspects individually before presenting five possible scenarios to try to map out the future of this issue in the public space for the next fifteen years. 11:00 11:20 Jean-Louis Hunault The challenges facing animal eHealth Digital technology increases our capacity to know, monitor, interpret and, finally, manage data obtained from animals. We are moving towards a continuous data processing model based on three pillars: information (potentially available to all), product (diagnosis, drug, device) and service (veterinarian). This should bring an improvement in the quality of care, a veterinary medecine that is more predictive, with better follow-up of treatment and of any adverse reactions resulting... Read More

eHealth: A vital tool to improve public health in developing countries Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist Coming mainly out of initiatives by ordinary people or from the private sector, the integration of new information and communication technologies is today considered to be of strategic importance by many developing countries who are keen to strengthen their healthcare systems. The challenges are clearly different from one country to another (digital infrastructure, technological maturity of the country, . . .), but in all cases, scaling up these initiatives will only be possible through the involvement of local public authorities.
Optimising the medical monitoring of patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, treated with insulin and chronically uncontrolled, is a huge challenge. This challenge has been taken up by Sanofi and its partners at the origin of Diabeo, a mature solution with Class IIb Medical Device status and a clinical efficacy validated in 2016 by the French National Authority for Health (HAS). In an upcoming development for Diabeo, Sanofi and its partners are planning to start telemedicine experimentation within the framework of the ETAPES programme (Telemedicine Experiments for the Improvement of Healthcare Pathways) governed by Article 36 of the 2014 French Social Security Financing Act.

Hosted by Lionel Buannic, journalist A once-in-a-while relationship based on an exchange of correspondence following an isolated case of healthcare spending by an insured person: this is what the insurer/person-insured relationship looked like not so long ago. Between the increased expectations of citizens with regard to service and the aspirations of insurers wanting to contribute to the good health of their customers, a revolution in the relationship between health insurers and their customers was to be expected. Digital tools are the vector of this change, making this relationship both customer-tailored and long-lasting. Innovative digital services, specifically developed to meet the different needs of the insured persons throughout their entire lifetime, available 24/7 online, federating a traditional service offering and accompanying the beneficiaries on the road to better health, this is the current trend which has resulted in the emergence of the Insurtechs. To conclude the session, the Keynote address of Jorge GONZALEZ OLALLA: “From SMEs to global services providers: eHealth Hub a comprehensive approach to lead innovative solutions to the market”
As an introduction: European Regulation on Personal Data Protection in health: an industrial’s point of view GDPR, which is coming into force on 25th of May 2018, strengthens the rights of European citizens concerning their personal data and therefore puts requirements on every organization that is controlling or processing this data. In this regulation the European Union puts special attention to genetic, biometric and in general any health data of individuals. GDPR complements therefore current requirements such as a data processing and storage by a “Hébergeur agréé de données de santé à caractère personnel ». In this session we will introduce GDPR and resulting actions, and discuss implication to the health and life science sector. How to make an eHealth app secure with regard to personal data? What are the rules to be complied with? This talk introduces participants to the new online data and privacy landscape and explores how European data protection laws impact the collection and processing of data, thereby affecting you. You’ll get a detailed understanding of how to adhere to data protection standards whilst maintaining your startup’s commercial goals. Topics covered will include: an overview of the European data protection and online privacy standards, compliance requirements,... Read More

Hosted by Pascale Barre, Pierre Fabre Laboratories – Dermo-Cosmetics In 2013, an information report of the Senate on the level of medical presence in the whole country points out an “unacceptable situation which is not going to improve” due to difficulties of access to healthcare, inequality in the territorial distribution of the healthcare provision and a significant decrease in medical demographics. In the context of an ageing population, in which chronic illness is increasingly present, the needs for medical care have grown. eHealth would help to provide solutions by preserving the foundations of the healthcare system while at the same time increasing its added value both for professionals and for patients. A survey conducted by the eHealth Lab in 2014: “Mobile applications and doctors: a digital divide with the patient?” led to the drawing-up of 10 recommendations to be considered when developing a mobile healthcare application. Today, what is the impact of the use of these new digital tools on the patient-doctor relationship, that is the subject of this round table.
