“Atos Origin Partners Conference on Information Technology In Healthcare and Social Services, Presents Two Workshops on Thursday, 23 June 2005”

Paris, 22 June 2005

Atos Origin is partnering the Conference on Information Technology for Healthcare and Social Services, to be held on 23-24 June at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. During the conference, the company will present the experiences of two clients: France's employee health insurance fund (CNAMTS) as part of the workshop on “Companies and the French Healthcare and Social Benefits System” and the Nord Picardie regional health insurance fund (CRAM) as part of the workshop on “A Single Window Service for Tracking Life Events.”

Can information technology and telecommunications really contribute to social progress? Can there be such a thing as a repository for healthcare and social information?

The Conference on Information Technology for Healthcare and Social Services marks the first meeting in France for healthcare and social services professionals who are interested in or already using information systems to serve patients, beneficiaries, physicians, social services and government agencies.

Atos Origin will facilitate discussions and the exchange of ideas based on its experience with two clients:

  • Diadème: How Organizational Performance Can Enhance an Employer's Relationship with the National Health Insurance System. This presentation, jointly delivered by Atos Origin and CNAMTS, will illustrate how — through Diadème, a nationwide project to migrate health insurance documents to electronic media — the paperless environment can offer organizations direct gains as well as opportunities to optimize and redeploy resources to deliver services that more effectively meet the special demands of beneficiaries, healthcare professionals and employers.
    Workshop: Companies and the French Healthcare and Social Benefits System, 23 June at 2:30 pm.
  • Improving the Management of User-Institution Contacts in Healthcare and Social Services. This presentation will describe how a hotline solution was implemented to meet the new organizational needs of the Nord Picardie regional health insurance fund.
    Workshop: A Single Window Service for Tracking Life Events, 23 June at 4:30 pm.

The increased use of information systems to improve the transparency, openness, speed and sharing of communications — without compromising the strategic need to protect data privacy — is modernizing or removing barriers that once existed between the medical world and the patient/beneficiary. By virtue of its extensive knowledge of the public sector and its specialized expertise in healthcare and social services, Atos Origin is playing a major role in helping patients, hospitals, national health insurance funds and government agencies understand these rapidly evolving boundaries and simplify their relationships.
