“Agence eSanté, Luxembourg’s national agency for the exchange and sharing of medical data ”
Agence eSanté was founded in 2011 as an Economic Interest Group (G.I.E). Its roots go back to 2006, the year in which the Luxembourg government adopted the national Health Action Plan. The first projects launched further to this Action Plan revealed that healthcare professionals needed a platform allowing them to share medical data. Thus, Luxembourg Government decided in 2010 to create a national agency that would be in charge of implementing such digital platform. The Healthcare Reform Law voted in December 2010 laid the legal basis for the establishment of Agence eSanté, which became operational in 2012 and has since then been in charge of the development of a coherent national eHealth strategy.
The eSanté team currently consists of 14 professionals who drive and monitor the various projects that are required for the deployment of the eHealth platform and its services. The interdisciplinary team with its variety of profiles provides the necessary diversity in expertise and also reflects the technological, professional and cultural challenges of this ambitious national project.
When and where required additional advice and know-how is sought with external specialists. And to make sure that the services put in place by the agency respond to the requirements and practical needs of the different actors of Luxembourg’s healthcare sector, Agence eSanté involves the relevant stakeholders in work groups and thematic exchanges so as to integrate their input in its decision-taking-process.
