Terms and conditions of use

1) Purpose:

To develop the Espaces Numériques Régionaux de Santé (ENRS) (Regional Healthcare Digital Space) in each French region that falls within a national policy piloted by the Agence des Systèmes d’Information Partagés de Santé (ASIP Santé) (Shared Healthcare Information Systems Agency). In Guadeloupe and the Iles du nord, driving the ENRS has been entrusted to the Groupement de Coopération Sanitaire (GCS) (Healthcare Cooperative Association) Archipel 971.

2) Definitions

  • The Groupement de Coopération Sanitaire (GCS) Archipel 971 is responsible for driving the ENRS. Its purpose is to "Facilitate, improve, and develop the exchange and sharing of information between healthcare workers in Guadeloupe and the Iles du nord, particularly the coordination and standardization of existing healthcare information systems."
  • The user is any person in the wider public or any healthcare professional consulting the portal, which can be accessed at
  • The Espace Numérique Régional de Santé is "a digital space providing dematerialized services, institutionally carried by the ARS and driven by a control of regional projects. It follows the framework of interoperability and promoted reference guides, notably by ASIP Santé, while meeting regional healthcare needs."
  • The GCS Archipel 971 Courbaril portal is a unique portal that provides access to ENRS services.
  • The regional directory of healthcare professionals in Guadeloupe and the Iles du nord is the cornerstone of other services, and constitutes the unique point of access where all healthcare professionals and workers in the region are registered, by geographic area, by name or even by specialty.
  • The secure message system combines the features of a traditional message service (sending emails and attachments) and the security of a confidentiality and authenticity level that complies with the confidentiality decree of May 15, 2007. In line with the S/MIME standard, only the body of the text is encrypted (be careful as the email subject line is not encrypted).
  • The Carte de Professionnels de Santé (CPS) (healthcare professional card) "is an individual electronic card protected by a confidential code (…). They (…) enable:
    • identification of a healthcare professional, i.e. unequivocal recognition of that person and their skills;
    • authentication, i.e. evidence-based verification of their identity;
    • electronic signatures on documents or acts; this is what enables the holder to commit to the contents of a transmitted document and to guarantee its non-alteration;
    • the encryption of sent data that only the recipient can read. The information must be sent in such a way that it cannot be intercepted and read by a third party. Encryption certificates are used as part of the message safeguarding tools (MST) to ensure the confidentiality of messages through data encryption."

3) Accepting the terms and conditions of use

When sending a registration request, the user is committing to respecting the general conditions of use thereafter. They define the terms and conditions of use for the tools and services, which are imposed on all of the users who have an account.
The GCS Archipel 971 informs users that the conditions of use will be regularly updated. Modifications will enter into force from the date they are published online.

4) Access through authentication

The tools and services on the GCS Archipel 971 Courbaril portal can be accessed following user authentication. CPS has a strong authentication and is the recommended access mode.
If the user does not yet have a CPS, they can use degraded mode: weak authentication "user name – password". In this case, the password is personal and confidential. The user is solely responsible for keeping their password and for its use. All connections to the Courbaril portal and data sent will be deemed to have been performed by the user. In this case, the users can encrypt/sign their messages thanks to the provision of software certificates.
The user is informed that the weak authentication is temporary and must become a strong authentication using CPS, in accordance with the obligations imposed by the development of legislative and regulatory guidelines. As this feature is temporary, the GCS Archipel 971 can suspend this feature at any time in favor of the exclusive use of the CPS.

5) User commitments

  • The user agrees to regularly take note of alterations to the general conditions of use that GCS Archipel 971 may bring and to meet these conditions in their modified version.
  • The user agrees to provide accurate and complete information. In the event that the information provided is inaccurate, incomplete or obsolete, GCS Archipel 971 reserves the right to refuse to open the account, either permanently or temporarily, or to cancel the account at any time.
  • Should the user refuse to comply with the terms and conditions of use, their account will be automatically blocked, without prejudice to any legal action that may be launched by GCS Archipel 971 and all damages and benefits that could be claimed by the user.
  • The user agrees to update their account with any modifications to information provided when the account was opened.
  • The user is required to comply with the provisions set out in laws pertaining to data processing, files and liberties, in which violation of said laws is subject to penal sanctions.
