As the second largest healthcare market in the EU, France offers many business opportunities for innovative healthcare solution providers. Not only has the Covid-19 health crisis highlighted the urgent need for an in-depth transformation of healthcare in France, but also accelerated the digitalization of healthcare resulting in great demand for digital solutions across all healthcare sectors.
An ambitious healthcare modernization plan, Ségur de la Santé, was announced in France in 2020 as part of the French €100 bn recovery plan. The plan includes €19bn investments aiming at transforming healthcare services, upgrading medical and social care facilities, and modernizing the digital infrastructure as well as developing the use of digital tools and remote solutions.
