The telemedicine market - France

Available languages


1.1 Definition and scope of the study

Telemedicine is a sub-domain of e-health, which includes innovations in the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for health activities.

In France, since 2009, telemedicine is regulated and the public health code defines 5 types of medical acts related to telemedicine [Article L6316-1 Legifrance ] :

  • Teleconsultation: allows a medical professional to consult a patient at a distance;
  • Tele-expertise: allows a medical professional to seek the opinion of other expert medical professionals on the basis of elements in a patient's medical record;
  • Telemedical monitoring: allows a health professional to make decisions on the management of a patient;
  • Tele-medical assistance: allows a medical professional to remotely assist another professional during the performance of a procedure;
  • The medical response provided within the framework of medical regulation during calls made to the SAMU or the centres 15 is also part of telemedicine acts.

This study covers all these medical acts and shows how telemedicine can be a complement and/or substitute to traditional medical services.

In France, health expenditure is growing faster than GDP, which provides a strong foundation for this market to expand. [BpiFrance]
