New Socio-technical Devices to Improve Coordination in Healthcare in France


Therese Depeyrot-Ficatier*,Christian Bourret,Claudie Meyer

In the specific context of the Healthcare coordination between medical, socio medical and social organizations of the ambulatory field in France, we propose to examine some tracks with the perspective offered by new ways of sharing information. First we explain our researchers’ position and the methodology used.

Then after reviewing different models of coordination entities, we intend to clarify the role played by such organizations acting as interface between hospitals and ambulatory services.

We will then address the issue of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that contribute to support and improve the healthcare coordination.

Through the evolution observed with the convergence between organizational models of coordination and technological devices, we will try to highlight the way of producing and sharing information on healthcare platforms for care coordination.

As an illustration of the value created by the new socio-technical devices, we will have a glimpse at the current innovative trend in healthcare coordination in France.
