Les conditions d'émergence des marchés de la télémédecine : entre territoires de santé, projets d'expérimentation et écosystèmes d'affaires

Abstract : This research is focused on emerging market(s) of telemedicine. Telemedicine refers to the use of information and communication technologies for the delivery of distant clinical care. Here the concept of market has been considered as a "social construction", within a sociotechnical perspective, with a game of actors located within a specific institutional environment, but also within a dynamic use of ICT. Therefore, our research project aimed at analyzing the ways in which the logics of technology supply can be set out with the construction of relevant usages from the demand side. We laid special emphasis on the construction of an analytical framework of the emerging telemedicine market, which has enabled us to propose several hypotheses on its structuring. Since several years, the telemedicine market has been characterized by experiments on ICT applications to healthcare. These experiments, which are main organizational configurations, have been brought mainly by stakes of technological innovations or organizational and socio-economic integration of devices. This assessment provided the analytical and methodological cornerstone of our work: to study, in situ and through specific conceptual frameworks, two experimental projects as archetypes of telemedicine projects. Our thesis statement is that telemedicine markets can be structured by the coalition of heterogeneous actors involved around a common value, expressed around a technological standard, platforms of technological and medical service offers; or a strategic view of territories. Therefore, business ecosystem models could be considered as a relevant organizational configuration to boost the emerging market of telemedicine.
