The system transfers the health data of every patient to a central database which the various health care providers can consult through the local hospital, general practitioner or pharmacy systems with the appropriate authorisation.
The central services of the EESZT render the health care processes faster and more transparent. The system enables efficient and immediate data exchange, which primarily aims at implementing the exchange of patient data and documentation, and the mutual use of resources (CT, MR, laboratory, other diagnostics). Data exchanges enable a more thorough knowledge of the patient’s medical history data, as documents generated by other providers also become accessible.
The EESZT ensures efficient communication within the healthcare sector with the highest level of data and cyber protection. The system is scaled to simultaneously serve approximately 100,000 healthcare professionals, thus it is capable of simultaneously serving 40 % of all users.
Pursuant to Section 2(1a) of Decree No 39/2016 of 21 December 2016 of the Ministry of Human Capacities on detailed rules relating to the National eHealth Infrastructure (hereinafter “Decree”), the health care provider was required to meet the obligation relating to accession by 1 January 2020, which has the right to provide health services not on the basis of the operating licence issued by the governmental health agency, and is not required to submit a financing report or provide data by electronic means, but holds an operating licence for performing medical or dental activity. Pursuant to Section 22(5a) of the Decree, such health care providers have been required to meet the data provision obligation within the EESZT from 1 June 2020.
Based on the above, each privately funded healthcare provider holding an operating licence for medical or dental activity has been required to provide data to the EESZT
· from 1 January 2020 for accession to the EESZT,
· from 1 June 2020 for meeting the obligation to provide data to the EESZT.
Within the framework of the data provision obligation, the range of data that must be reported to the EESZT is defined by Chapter III/A of Act XLVII of 1997 on the processing and protection of health care and related personal data and the annexes of the Decree. The Decree is currently being amended, as a result of which the data provision obligation of each health care provider required to join is regulated on an item-by-item basis. Within the framework of the data provision obligation, data defined in such legislation must be forwarded to the EESZT.
Please be aware that you need to have an EESZT accredited system in order to start providing data. Before launching the accession process, please enquire with your IT system supplier or on the healthcare systems website, which lists the EESZT accredited medical systems.
