Santé connectée

Launched at the end of 2017 by Bpifrance, Patient Autonome aims to invest in the seed-stage of smart health start-ups. Investments from funds will aim to strengthen the deployment of innovative solutions aiming to increase patient autonomy thanks to smart health. They will usually allow for a prototype to be finalised, confirm its relevance and its range on a market and stabilise a development strategy, notably internationally, to accelerate the signing of contracts.


In the context of the partnership with Bpifrance, CNAM will provide its expertise in terms of patient needs and professional health practices, which will allow for a more detailed analysis of the potential innovations developed, taking into account the French and European regulatory constraints and their ongoing developments.
