Event catalogue - online patient pathway tracking

All such events are displayed in EESZT’s event catalogue, when you used a healthcare service in outpatient and inpatient facilities, in the emergency unit, lab, radiology department, or at the general practitioner. The information is recorded and uploaded by the institutions providing the services, so that both you and your therapist will know exactly - even after years - when, where and what kind of examination you underwent and who treated you. This greatly facilitates the establishment of later diagnoses and correspondence between the respective therapists of the patient.

Besides tracking your patient history, the event catalogue also creates an opportunity to establish central data processing, registration and national IT services with the help of this data in order to improve health care services and enhance the effectiveness of the organisation of medical care. Data that can be processed centrally may contribute to the establishment of professional medical information bases. Furthermore, treatment processes can be monitored and analysed on local, county and nation-wide levels, and information can be treated statistically to make the whole operation measurable and verifiable.


However, it is important to know that your private patient history is strictly confidential, it can be only accessed by the yourself and the therapist.
You, as a citizen are freely able to decide which physician shall access which past or current patient data of yours. This allows you to hide any sensitive information from your physicians at any time.  You can read more under the Self-determination section (https://e-egeszsegugy.gov.hu/digitalis-onrendelkezes)

Determining the exact range of events relevant to the National eHealth Infrastructure (EESZT) is a sectoral management task that is prescribed by law. The following list is just a sample which contains case types to provide a comprehensive overview of which personal data is stored in the system:

  • Inpatient care patient admission and discharge
  • Outpatient care patient admission and discharge
  • General practitioner patient admission and discharge
  • Laboratory diagnostics
  • CT and MR diagnostics
  • Emergency care
