exolis announces partnership with Institut Bergonié and Synapse


The objective: to strengthen the link between hospital pharmacists and retail pharmacists in the follow-up of cancer patients

Paris, February 7, 2022 - TheInstitut Bergonié, Synapse Medicine and exolis announce the launch of their unique partnership, combining the expertise of a cancer centre, a patient portal editor enabling remote monitoring and a medication reconciliation solution. Together, they aim to improve the city-hospital link for the benefit of cancer patients. It is within the framework of Article 51[1] that 45 health establishments with innovative projects will be able to launch the experiment Oncolink piloted by Unicancer, for patients receiving oral anticancer drugs at home. Why is it essential to strengthen the link between community pharmacists and hospital pharmacists in the monitoring of cancer patients? How can connected health solutions improve the link between the city and health institutions?

Transmission of information: the key to improving the city-hospital link

The partnership between the Institut Bergonié, Synapse Medicine and exolis is a project to experiment with home monitoring of cancer patients taking oral anticancer drugs. This monitoring confronts health professionals with the essential sharing of information. The capacity to exchange information and the interoperability of thesystems used are fundamental for good coordination of care and complete and continuous monitoring of the patient at home. 

Thanks to this partnership, the information filled in by the patient on his Bergonié Uniconnect application , developed by exolis and used for the past three years, as well as that transmitted by the pharmacists via Synapse, is automatically transmitted to the platforms used by each of the players, as well as to the establishment's DPI (Electronic Patient Record). The interoperability of the systems enables real-time transmission and maintenance of the same level of information for all, in the institution and in the city.  

Medication reconciliation, even at a distance, thanks to a healthcare professional platform

When a patient is managed outside the hospital, all the patient's medications must be collected so that the oncologist can take them into account when prescribing. The challenge of medication reconciliation is therefore to establish communication between hospital pharmacists and retail pharmacists, who draw up the medication review based on this reliable and exhaustive list of all the medicines taken by the patient on prescription or self-medication .

This medication review is then optimised (BMO) to ensure its relevance and safety, but also its consistency with the oral chemotherapy prescribed by the oncologist. A personalised treatment plan is then generated to help the patient take his or her medication. The Synapse platform displays on intuitive screens all the information relating to the patient's medication management, which is shared between retail pharmacists, hospital pharmacists, nurses and doctors.

A solution that makes the patient a player in his or her care

The remote home monitoring service offered by exolis allows patients to be involved in their care. Firstly, the patient participates in the sharing of information by regularly filling in a form on his or her state of health from the Bergonié Uniconnect application.


The patient adheres to their care pathway and follows the recommendations agreed with their health care team. They are autonomous in taking their treatment and find their treatment plan in their application, which tells them when and how they should take their medication. Caregivers, whether in the city or in an institution, have their own dedicated space to monitor and deal with adverse effects reported in real time by patients. In the near future, adverse events will be transmitted automatically and in real time to the Synapse platform, allowing different healthcare professionals to be at the same level of information at the same time.


The involvement of the patient in his therapy and in his connected care pathway makes it possible to provide ultra-personalised support from home for better monitoring of each individual.
