The customer

The Pointe-à-Pitre University Hospital Center is a university hospital located in Abymes, on the island of Guadeloupe.

A benchmark establishment in the organization of the Guadeloupe health system, the Pointe-à-Pitre University Hospital carries out the missions entrusted to it by the State and in particular care, prevention, teaching and research.


The objectives

This is an innovative project to digitize the medical records of the CHU with a zero paper perspective and part of a logic of preparation for the valuation of data and artificial intelligence.

Two strong contextual elements surround this approach:

  •     The construction of the new CHU following the fire in 2017 and the ongoing preparation of the establishment's strategy;
  •     The impetus given at the national level to these themes as part of the MaSanté2022 plan.


Our answer

Mobilizing all its expertise, Luminess (formerly Jouve) supported the CHU in its policy of digitizing medical archives with the implementation of:

  • A portal for managing document communication requests; 
  • a highly configurable digital parts processing line;
  • a digital parts warehouse;
  • pilot on two services: the Sickle cell disease service first, then the Neurology service.




“One of the key elements was the support proposal from Luminess (formerly Jouve) in the implementation of this innovation, by integrating AI into the project. This will allow us to exploit and enhance the digitized data of the CHU. We will thus be able to be the first CHU which will be able, thanks to this specific work, to make relevant use of the data resulting from the analysis of pathologies. Certain lines of work have already been identified by our doctors and our scientific community. »
