New experiments under Article 51 of the Social Security Financing Act in France
The French Ministry of Solidarity and Health constantly announces the new experiments initiated under Article 51 of the Social Security Financing Act. These experiments are focused on various topics concerning medical technologies and the organization of care. At the beginning of January 2022, new experiments were announced which relate to geriatric care, autonomy loss prevention, physical rehabilitation during and after cancer treatment.
Article 51 of the Social Security Financing Act allows for the financing of innovative technologies and organizational schemes in the health sector. In order to receive financing via this framework, the experiments proposed must improve healthcare access, system efficiency, the relevance of prescription, and patient pathway. With this approach, the experimentations can bypass one or more of the 63 regulations of social security financing laws, if it is on the coordination of medical pathway, relevance and quality of health, social or medico-social services, structuration of ambulatory cares and healthcare access.
At the beginning of January 2022, new experiments under Article 51 of the Social Security Financing Act were announced by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health:
- CAMI SPORT - coordinated program and fixed payment of physical activity for therapeutic purposes in oncology with the total financing of experiment estimated at €789,670;
- VIGIE AGE (Île-de-France) - creation and evaluation of geriatric care network for the home care of elderly patients with multiple pathologies in unstable condition with the total financing of experiment estimated аt €6,126,661;
