ASIP Santé publishes two key documents, to coincide with the conference of the Fédération Française des Maisons et Pôles de Santé

Services | 08 Oct 2012
On Friday 30 and Saturday 31 March, the conference of the Fédération Française des Maisons et Pôles de Santé (FFMPS) is taking place in Paris. This year, the event focuses on frontline services, and the meeting will enable healthcare professionals to exchange experiences, find answers to their questions and to understand the challenges of the coming years in a sector that is currently subject to much change. To mark the event, ASIP Santé is publishing two key structural documents about computerization of healthcare centres and clusters.
In the changing world of frontline care, many healthcare professionals are faced with the prospect of changing how they work as a team, in order to meet new efficiency requirements in the healthcare sector. This major annual event therefore aims to provide food for thought and gather feedback from professionals, in order to assist with the development of healthcare centres and clusters throughout France. As information systems are at the heart of these projects, ASIP Santé has worked closely with FFMPS representatives to define the criteria for the successful rollout of such systems, and in particular in terms of information-sharing procedures that are essential if these new organizations are to function well.

In view of this, Jean-Yves Robin, the director of ASIP Santé, will speak at the plenary session at the start of the event, alongside François-Xavier Selleret from the direction générale de l'offre de soins (DGOS) and Jean-Luc Harousseau from the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS).

The rest of the conference will consist of workshops on themes relating to the new requirements, such as bringing together frontline care professionals across regions, modernizing healthcare management (coordination, creation of joint care protocols, joint working), and modernizing information systems.

 


To mark this event, ASIP Santé is publishing two key structural documents to encourage computerization and the exchange of electronic data in healthcare centres and clusters :
  • A template project plan for the creation of a shared information system in healthcare centres and clusters and polyclinics, and a methodological guide.
  • A template specifications document for creating information systems in healthcare centres and polyclinics, describing expected services (provision of software, configuration, training, maintenance) in a context that is appropriate to the legal structure of healthcare centres and clusters (SISA - Sociétés Interprofessionnelles de soins ambulatoires).
The publication of these two documents marks a new phase in ASIP Santé's work with healthcare centres and clusters, following the December 2011 publication of a study that aimed to specify information systems in healthcare centres and clusters and in polyclinics. This study was carried out following a request by the Direction générale de l'offre de soins (DGOS) and thedirection de la Sécurité sociale (DSS), and it identified two types of professional procedures that correspond to two information systems models: "integrated" and "distributed" models. The study provides a broad view of these two models, so that shared solutions can be implemented effectively.

Healthcare centres and clusters, which are facilities that bring together healthcare professionals from various disciplines, are a new way of organizing healthcare, and the legal framework for these is described in the 2009 law "Hôpital, patients, santé et territoire" (HPST). This way of organizing healthcare provides a definite response to the problems of accessibility and coordination of care, and could be one of the key ways of improving the healthcare system as a whole. As such, ASIP Santé is working to develop information systems in this area.
