Microsoft, PetalMD and Projetlys Unite to Improve Digital Health in France

On May 21, attendees at Paris Healthcare Week will learn how the Centre Hospitalier Intercommunal de Créteil, a hospital located in the suburbs of Paris with more than 500 beds, is optimizing its medical scheduling management using Canadian expertise in digital health.

Matthieu Girier, Director of Human Resources at the CHI de Créteil, along with Marie-Claude Messier, Vice-President of International Development at PetalMD, will explain how Petal Scheduling, the solution developed by PetalMD, is addressing the challenges faced by the 33rd best hospital in France in managing its physicians' schedules. The presentation will be given at the Agora of Health-IT Expo (HIT) on Tuesday, May 21, at 9:15 a.m.


Some of the challenges faced by the CHI de Créteil

  • Increasing complexity of schedules due to the growth of some of its departments
  • Difficulty in ensuring conformity between physicians' schedules and actual work performed
  • Difficulty in optimally allocating medical services when preparing schedules


This will be the second time this spring that a satisfied hospital manager will share their experiences with PetalMD solutions at a medical convention in Europe. The first was on April 2 at the 2019 HIMSS Liège conference in Belgium, when an executive of the CHC care network spoke about the PetalMD solution alongside Marie-Claude Messier.
