The obligation to forward data into the EESZT is implemented in three categories or modules. All healthcare providers connected to the EESZT with a reporting obligation are mandated to report the generated data and documents that are defined by law.
Please be aware that you need to have an EESZT accredited IT system in order to start reporting. Data reporting is conducted in an automated manner through the IT system. Therefore, connecting healthcare providers preparing for data reporting are first mandated to secure and use an EESZT accredited IT system.
Please seek further information from your IT system provider, or at https://e-egeszsegugy.gov.hu/medikai-rendszerek, where you can find the list of EESZT-accredited medical systems.
Data reporting is implemented in the three following modules: Central Event Catalogue, Medical Documents, Medical profile.
- Central Event Catalogue
- Medical Documents
- Medical profile
