Using an interoperable and interconnected communication platform facilitating the circulation of standardized documents and increasing the efficiency of information coordination tools and health and socio-medial information systems in the Nancy region, such is the mission of the joint initiative of Pulsy, the CHRU of Nancy and Pharmagest.

This cooperation will make it possible to share a large volume of health documents and information in a very short time.
