e-Health Policy faces a radical change of perspective in the development of new e-Health projects. Indeed these projects are no longer conceived as simple answers to well-identified and punctual needs. Today they are part of an Infrastructure Policy aiming at the establishment and the operation of real information highways in healthcare. This paper tests the creation of these highways against four validity criteria : necessity, transparency, security & confidentiality, and quality.
