The French Fitness Check

October 3, 2022

Calling all healthtech entrepreneurs and experts in France! Have your say in the French Fitness Check to spotlight startup perspectives on the state of the French healthtech ecosystem. 

All too often digital health innovators invest time and resources navigating complex regulatory measures across Europe. This, in turn, hinders digital health solutions from reaching their full potential. We believe startup entrepreneurs should be preoccupied with what they do best – innovating. 

With the HealthTech Charter officially launched – a best-practice repository of the most empowering policies and measures for digital health innovation across Europe – Allied for Startups is zooming into Member States and conducting ‘Fitness Checks’ of the digital health innovation ecosystem. Having kicked off the series with a first overview of Spain, we are now moving forward with our second Fitness Check – France. 

Published in 2019, the French Ministry of Health outlined its three-year roadmap to accelerate the national eHealth transition. From health data sharing, e-prescriptions, to increased funding for startups and research, the digitization of France’s health system was mapped out along five key pillars. As we enter the final breakthrough year of France’s roadmap transition, it’s time to take a look at  how far we’ve come. 

Join leading entrepreneurs, healthcare actors, and key policy makers as we compile and launch The French Fitness Check in Brussels and France according to the seven topics of the HealthTech Charter:

  1. Reimbursement of Digital Health Applications 
  2. Access to Secondary Health Data 
  3. eHealth Services and Interoperability 
  4. Artificial Intelligence in Health 
  5. Telemedicine
  6. Public-Private Partnerships 
  7. Accelerators and Grants
