Paris Healthcare Week 2019: an innovative collaboration in Europe on real-life health data
First Line Software, an innovative IT-technology and services company, attended the Paris Healthcare Week, a major French event for healthcare professionals with nearly 30.000 visitors a year. This event took place from 21 to 23 of May 2019 at Paris Porte de Versailles. Colleagues from our European headquarters in The Hague went to Paris to visit our global partners and customers and explore possible opportunities in French Healthcare.
The Paris Healthcare Week brings together the historic fairs of the Hospital Federation of France (FHF), founder of the event. The president of the FHF, Frédéric Valletoux, launched the event with an opening speech. "Creating, innovating, transforming are not empty words. Change is at the heart of the DNA of our institutions, as evidenced (to take just one example) by the activity of the Research Innovation Fund,” he said.
Through its presence in an increasingly interconnected health ecosystem, First Line Software supports healthcare professionals and institutions in the technology evolution of their practices. The Company leverages its expertise in the cloud, Big Data and digital to develop innovative offers in secure hosting, healthcare practice management, coordination of care, optimization of the patient journey and telemedicine.
We had some insightful meetings with our partners during these three days. Many developments in French healthcare align well with the core expertise of First Line Software. Integration and interoperability, data engineering and smart analytics will be, just as in other countries, crucial in France in the coming years. Furthermore, we met a number of SME companies working on innovative solutions - not unlike the ones that we work on with our partners in other countries. It is good to see that also in France, integration, data sharing and analytics across domains are considered prerequisites for truly effective transitions and innovations in healthcare.
We are looking forward to working together with partners and customers in France!
