Communiqué de Presse | 20 Sep 2010
Paris, 23 June 2010 – ASIP Santé announces the launch of the esante.gouv.fr portal, an information and services area for all e-health stakeholders (institutions, patients, healthcare professionals, health institutions, associated industries, etc), which goes live today.
The development of e-health in France is a government priority, and a means of tackling the economic, demographic and public health challenges the country faces. Initiated by Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, the French Minister for Health and Sports, the development of e-health is now one of the nine main themes within the new digital usage project proposed by the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Employment (financed by the €35 billion Grand Emprunt or "Big Loan" investment package recently announced by President Sarkozy, and the Development Plan for the Digital Economy).
