État des lieux de la télémédecine en EHPAD en France métropolitaine et dans les DROM / COM en juin 2019

Abstract : The Telemedicine program in retirement homes allows telemedicine acts (teleconsultation, tele-expertise, telemonitoring and teleassistance) between an expert center and a resident in an equipped retirement home. In 2019, 63% of retirement homes in New-Aquitaine are equipped or in the process of being equipped with telemedicine. Identify french regions and overseas territories using Telemedicine in retirement homes. It’s a descriptive overview of Telemedicine in retirement homes in France and overseas territories. It was carried out from January 23rd to June 12th of 2019 by sending a questionnaire to regional telemedicine managers in France and overseas territories. We had a total of 100% answers. The telemedicine activity in retirement homes is deployed in the 12 regions of metropolitan France, and in Martinique and StPierre-and-Miquelon islands. It is being studied in Corsica, Guadeloupe and Reunion islands. It’s not yet considered in Guyana and New-Caledonia. It should be noted that French Polynesia and the archipelago of Wallis and Futuna don’t have retirement homes. The most advanced regions in the project are New Aquitaine with 63% of retirement homes equipped or in the process of being equipped, the Center-Val de Loire (63% of retirement homes), the Great-Est (42% of retirement homes) and Normandy (32% of retirement homes). Note that the only retirement home of St-Pierre-and-Miquelon island has telemedicine. In the other regions where telemedicine is present in retirement homes, between 3.4% and 16% of the facilities are already equipped or are being equipped. The telemedicine project in retirement homes is at an early stage in the majority of french regions and overseas territories. However, it remains a priority project for all territories in order to improve the care of elderly people living in these facilities.
