Cycle "Places & Health" - Tuesday 19 February 2019 from 8:15 AM to 10:00 AM - Maison de l'Architecture en Ile de France

logo kawa18 seulThe debate on the role of care and patients in a context of digital transition tends to forget the urban and territorial dimension and the effects of changes in the health system and especially the provision of care in the territories.

Over the last ten years, France has built not only in the healthcare sector but also in urban services - data, robotics, medical imaging, smart city - a technological base of great value; however it remains to transform these innovations into the widest possible use in an objective of improving the quality of the offer and to integrate these transformations into a territorial logic, for care and environmental health.

With this cycle of thematic breakfasts INTA and Urbapilot with the support of Le Pôle EVA encourage reflection and debate around the issue of the digital transition and its effects on health in the territories, both in a logic prevention, support for behavioral change, and improvement of ways of proposing healthy urban planning and health care provision.


The speakers



INTA and Urbapilot introduced the debate through a survey of initiatives carried out as part of the preparation of the Pilot Healthy Places applications programme in France and around the world. Then, thanks to the presence of stakeholders from the health, digital and local communities, we set out to answer three questions :

  • How local authorities are seizing digital technology to better support health care systems, take environmental health issues into account, and ensure a better quality of life for people? Is the digital offer allowing a better definition of local public policies favoring better environmental health and the evolution of practices in local health and urban planning?


  • How digital services help to change the individual health and prevention behaviors (diet, physical exercise, active modes of travel, but also the fight against the isolation of the elderly or with a loss of autonomy) ? Which actors undertake these prevention objectives ? 


  • How digital transforms care services provision ? How could it also responds to shortage of care provision in the territories ? The flow of medical data and the proliferation of connected medical tools and devices will have a real benefit in improving the quality of life of the patient as well as in the organizational impact of the health system. Combining artificial intelligence, robotics and medical expertise must lead to exceptional clinical results and optimize the work of doctors.
