PUBLISH YOUR APP
This option will be made available at the end of October 2018. The companies will receive a login and password to submit their application to publish data on their mobile app and to update their information when required. This data informs patients and carers regarding relevant data on the functionality of the mobile application and how the app will improve the health of the patient when compared to standard healthcare systems.
Only mobile apps that have attained at least level 1 in the validation triangle below will be published on this platform.
The triangle consists of three levels:
Level 1 sets the basic criteria for an application. Applied criteria:
- CE marking and comply with rules and regulations for medical devices. The Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP) is the relevant authority.
- The application must comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Level 2 is based on interoperability and links to basic eHealth platform services. To submit a request to register a mobile app at this level, the app must comply with the level 1 requirements and report on tests of their interoperability and links. These tests are to be performed by an independent organisation. Please visit the eHealth platform for more information on these basic services, technical specifications and more.
Level 3 is reserved for applications which have proven financial added value. These applications must also meet all level 1 and level 2 criteria. A separate financing model has been developed for applications that meet level 3 criteria. The party submitting the application for publication must provide detailed information on the medical and financial results of the application in a specific document. This document is submitted to the Belgian National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (RIZIV/INAMI) for assessment.
