Boulogne-Billancourt and Villers-lès-Nancy, 9 November 2018 6:30 p.m. (CET)
Cegedim and Pharmagest announce a strategic technological partnership in France
Providing interoperability for healthcare professionals across non-hospital and hospital segments
as a solution for addressing low physician density areas and population ageing in France
Cegedim (Euronext Paris - Compartment B - FR0000053506 - CGM), an innovative technology and services company, and Pharmagest (Euronext Paris - Compartment B - FR0012882389 - PHA), the French pharmacy information technology leader, announce a partnership in France to streamline patient health care pathways and relations between non-hospital and hospital segments by leveraging their software expertise.
Two major players promoting efficiencies across health care pathways in France
Increasing efficiencies of the healthcare system depend in large part on making available information system tools to healthcare professionals in both the non-hospital and hospital segments. These professionals require reliable and secure real-time or near-real-time patient information fully integrated in their different business applications. With existing interoperability systems having demonstrated their limits, only a strong technological partnership between two major players will lead to the development of a reliable and efficient health information system.
That is why Cegedim and Pharmagest have partnered to ensure the interoperability of their software solutions and databases in France.
Better patient care: the keystone of the partnership
The secure and efficient exchange of relevant information between healthcare professionals is essential for guaranteeing the quality of healthcare, particularly for the elderly and those living in low physician density areas, notably through tele-consultation and remote monitoring solutions.
For that reason, the interoperability of and process for exchanging information between the solutions of the Cegedim and Pharmagest groups concerns relations between:
- elderly assisted living facilities (EHPAD) (Malta Informatique applications) and non-hospital physicians, health centres, multi-professional and paramedical healthcare providers (Cegedim software solutions);
- hospital at home programmes (Dicsit applications), non-hospital physicians, health centres, multi-professional and paramedical healthcare providers (Cegedim software solutions);
- hospitals (regional hospitals equipped by Axigate) and non-hospital physicians, health centres, multi-professional and paramedical healthcare providers (Cegedim applications and the online appointment scheduling platform, Docavenue);
- pharmacists (LGPI Global Services of Pharmagest and Smart Rx of Cegedim) and non-hospital physicians, health centres, multi-professional and paramedical healthcare providers (Cegedim applications and Docavenue Teleconsultation), with a platform for scheduling appointments as part of tele-consultation services between pharmacies equipped with OffiTéléconsult by Pharmagest and doctors equipped by Cegedim with Docavenue Teleconsultation.
This strong strategic partnership will enable the two partners to widely deploy in both non-hospital and hospital segments their innovative tele-consultation and remote medical monitoring solutions.
