working on the facets of attractiveness collectively

Santé dans les régions

Even without direct competence in the supply of care, local authorities are tackling the question of their attractiveness vis-à-vis health professionals, in particular doctors. This is the case of the Grand-Est regional council.

We had from the start the desire to put health at the heart of the systems, underlined Véronique Guillotin, president of the Health, solidarity, citizenship commission of the regional council during the General States of health in the regions. And our first reflection focused on how a community could enhance medical attractiveness and access to care. on its territory.

According to her, the Region and the ARS have thus developed a ” exemplary cooperation » in particular to promote coordinated medical practice. ” We quickly understood that healthcare professionals no longer want to work as before added Véronique Guillotin. ” They are looking for a dynamic of health but also a dynamic of territory especially when, as is often the case, they have a spouse or even children. On these two dynamics, communities have a role to play “, estimated the regional councilor.

Local health dynamics

What led Yannick Pacquelet, general practitioner “ happy », to settle in a village of the Ardennes of 1200 inhabitants, it is indeed the dynamics of local health and the project of creation of a multidisciplinary health center.

An MSP, he testified, is much more than four walls, it is a state of mind ” shared by liberal health professionals from different backgrounds who wish “ work together, exchange, progress “.

Arnaud Robinet, mayor of Reims, confirmed that the co-construction of a medical project with professionals had more weight in the attractiveness of a territory than the granting of housing. He insisted : ” There is no magic solution ” other than ” work together, region, department, municipalities, establishments, with health professionals on these dynamics and the quality of life.

Jean Sibilia, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of Strasbourg, aspires to ” re-enchant the system and recreate a pact of trust between the State and the territories “. According to him, the university can play a role in this dynamic by implementing its responsibility for training and research and its ” population responsibility” to its students and staff. and, beyond that, citizens, in terms of understanding science and health issues “.

Economic ecosystem

Competitiveness clusters, particularly in the field of health, also contribute to the economic attractiveness of the territories, declared Marco Pintore, general manager of the BioValley cluster, in Strasbourg.

The TokTokdoc start-up, based in the Bas-Rhin prefecture, relies on telemedicine to improve access to care for the elderly, dependent or disabled people. A ministerial exemption, obtained in particular thanks to the support of the Region and the ARS Grand-Est, allows it to develop ” a new care model, a new economic model »: doctors who provide remote teleconsultations for patients in establishments accompanied by nurses are paid on a flat-rate basis and no longer on a fee-for-service basis.

This is ” the model of tomorrow for the territories », Estimates Laurent Schmoll, medical director of the start-up. Data multinationals like Amazon Care have understood this and are seeking to invest in this new market. For Jean Sibilia, “ you have to be actors. Otherwise we will watch the train go by and we will only reap the negative effects “.
