The opportunities offered by article 51 of the 2018 French Social Security Financing Law (LFSS) are numerous. Project leaders can offer experimentation with new care pathways (whether or not incorporating new tools), new funding methods, or promote better use of healthcare products. All this with the aim of improving the current healthcare system and providing the best possible support for patients. Thanks to its in-depth knowledge of the system, Alcimed supports its clients in the construction of their projects with a view to the successful submission of their experiment within the framework of Article 51.
Challenges related to Article 51 and Article 51 projects
What is Article 51 and what is the transformation of the healthcare offer?
The 2018 French Social Security Financing Law introduced, in its Article 51, a system allowing testing of new healthcare organizations based on new funding methods. The objective is to promote innovative organizations contributing to improving the patient pathway, the efficiency of the healthcare system, access to care and even the relevance of the prescription of healthcare products.
Article 51 projects submitted go through an iterative and rigorous selection process, in four main stages:
- The submission of the project by the project leaders
- The first selection filter by the General Rapporteur or the Regional Healthcare Agency (ARS)
- The review by the technical committee made up of all the directors of the Ministry, a Director General of ARS and the director of the National Union of Health Insurance Funds (UNCAM)
- Authorization by ministerial order or by order of an ARS DG
What are the challenges related to Article 51?
This new lever necessarily raises various questions:
How do we support you in your Article 51 projects?
Alcimed supports its clients at all stages of the construction of their projects: to better understand the way in which you can seize the system of Article 51, to reflect on your project and draw its outlines, to identify the partners (including public-private partnerships) and the best strategy to adopt to set up a winning project, or to organize the drafting and submission process of your project in connection with regional and national authorities.
