Detailed description:

Hospitals are increasingly in contact with the city outside (via outpatient care, postoperative follow-up, home-based hospitalization, etc.). ENGIE wants to help create innovative solutions in the e-health sector and offer new services for patients, professionals and operators.

The healthcare system is currently facing a number of major challenges, including dependency management, ensuring universal access to a quality care and significant increases in spending. These challenges can in part be met by digital technologies.

As an integrator of electrical, information and telecommunications systems and digital solutions, ENGIE INEO helps its clients in the healthcare sector to make the digital transformation and provides digital solutions for both healthcare facilities and patients' homes.

Working closely with local areas and citizens, ENGIE INEO currently provides this kind of support to over 350 health facilities.

Recent developments in medical research, consumption patterns, demographics, and new technologies all have a major impact on healthcare professions. More broadly, these trends are profoundly changing the nature of healthcare itself, calling into question not only our ways of life and how to improve them, but also how we conceive and design the future of care, especially when it comes to the care process and the lives of citizens.

This call for applications is for candidates who can demonstrate their solutions/services that involve technological or service-related innovations in the following areas:

- Wellness

- Social relation

- Mobility

- Security

- Comfort & Entertainment

- Preventative and therapeutic treatment

- Detection of medical conditions

- Monitoring, medical coordination and business processes

- Stakeholder on-boarding & change management

- Connectivity and access to information

- Connected objects

- Making the most of data

These services and applications could be provided to patients, caregivers, professionals and/or site managers. They could be installed/used at home and/or in a care facility.

Examples:

Having arrived at the hospital, the patient is uneasy. She asks a number of question about her operation. Seeing that she is anxious, the nurse gives her information and answers her questions using the "medical atlas" module in the digital patient terminal, which includes short videos of the operation.
Using the "e-visit" service on the patient terminal, the surgeon talks with the patient’s general practitioner and physical therapist to prepare her return home. This secure videoconference and messaging systems helps coordinate this three-way relationship.

Eligibility:

Your company must already exist and be in commercial development phase.

Winners will be chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the topic
  • Innovative project features
