Digital health is currently booming, providing major innovations, particularly in terms of changing the practices of the stakeholders in the healthcare system as a whole. It allows our healthcare system to draw on new synergies between independent, hospital and medico-social professionals, as well as on high-performance digital tools for the benefit of all, users, patients and professionals. These tools, or digital solutions, have a strong potential to improve the healthcare system but also a strong potential for economic development. In this respect, the great diversity of existing and future digital solutions, as well as their vast fields of application, are prompting public and private stakeholders in the sector to question their integration into our healthcare system. The resulting challenges concern the identification of the targets they are intended for, the values they embody and, as a result, the methods of funding and evaluation. At a time when the first reimbursement terms for digital solutions are taking shape in the context of the Social Security Financing Bill for 2022, the roundtable wished to propose 8 recommendations to help structure exchanges between the various stakeholders and initiate avenues of work around the integration of digital solutions into the healthcare system. The main orientations are based on the proposal of a common and transparent reflection methodology around the technical scope of these solutions, the values they bring and the funding mechanisms. Other work will be necessary beyond the points addressed by the round table in order to go into greater depth on certain themes such as the adaptation of existing funding methods to the momentum and specificities of digital technology or the development of research work on the evaluation of the value claimed by these digital solutions.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
