Personal Health Records - Public hearing
The Parliamentary Office for Scientific and Technological Assessment (OPECST), on the initiative of Mr Pierre Lasbordes, a deputy and Vice-President of OPECST, organised on 30 April 2009 a public hearing on the Personal Medical Record (DMP - dossier médical personnel). The creation of the DMP has been scheduled since the adoption of an Act in 2004 and its issues are essential, both for the quality of healthcare and the protection of personal health data. This public hearing was aimed, on the one hand, at taking stock of the experimentation as conducted to date, by examining the advances achieved and the difficulties encountered, and on the other hand, at studying the project's future prospects, in the light in particular of the relaunching plan announced by the Ministry of Health and Sports and by taking account of the technological solutions available in this field. By convening, for a single day, the main players of the project, authors of reports assessing the status of its advancement, the CNIL (National Committee on Information Technology and Liberties), representatives of the ministry, health professionals and users of the health system, as well as companies from the sector, the hearing set out to compare analyses on the conditions in which the project has been conducted, and also to compare the recommendations made following this feedback of experience.
