The digital revolution is a global transformation: it originates from research, is anchored in healthcare, and requires the deployment of industrial solutions that enable a change of scale in response to the expectations of patients and healthcare professionals, both in the city and in hospitals. To give France the best possible advantages and to play a leading role in this revolution, it is essential to mobilize scientific, hospital and university, and industrial forces and to bring them together.

This is the meaning of the partnership announced by the three major players, PariSanté Campus, Future4care and @Hôtel-Dieu, whose mission is to accelerate innovation in healthcare, each with specific expertise: PariSanté Campus in the field of research and training, Future4Care in the industrial field, and @Hôtel-Dieu in the hospital-university field.

By entering into an ambitious partnership, these three players intend to bring together the ecosystems they form and lead to create a global digital health community. This partnership, which is open to all regions, aims to increase France's national and international influence in this field.

It includes a special focus on start-ups, which are at the heart of the digital health revolution. PariSanté Campus, Future4care and @Hôtel-Dieu, which offer differentiated and complementary services, have therefore joined forces to launch joint programs open to startups supported by the three initiatives.

Four areas of collaboration are at the heart of this unprecedented partnership:

  •  To offer a cross-company support service for start-ups, at the highest level, based on a group of six pilot start-ups expressing a strong need for articulation with the three worlds;
  • To offer a unique event program, and thus become a place of animation and exchange in the service of a large global community of innovation in digital health through joint events and coordinated programming;
  • Start collaborations around health data: animate the common reflection integrating the expectations and constraints of research, care and industry around health data, in order to accelerate the digital health revolution by identifying innovative strategies of data sharing and analysis;
  • Coordinate the research effort conducted by the three structures and propose joint publications between Future4care, Hôtel-Dieu and PariSanté Campus.

More immediately, the three partners will organize cross-meetings with a few privileged startups from the different structures:

  • First step with @Hôtel-Dieu which will organize, in April 2022, a first day of immersion in the hospital for startups and industrial players ;
  • Then, in May, Future4care will organize the first workshop with the 6 pilot start-ups;
  • Finally, in June, a workshop on health data will be held at PariSanté Campus.

This partnership should give the ecosystem clarity and clear direction to digital health startups. More broadly, the areas of collaboration identified will serve to make progress in digital health as efficient as possible.
