University training

The theoretical instruction and practical training on the use of the EESZT (National eHealth Infrastructure) began in the academic year 2018/19, and by the academic year 2019/20, it has been adapted in the curriculum of the general medicine, faculties of dentistry and pharmacy of four Hungarian medical universities, and more faculties are planned to be involved in the training.

The aim of this education is for students to become familiar with the EESZT system, which they will use in their everyday work, before they obtain their diploma. During the lessons organised jointly by the National Healthcare Service Center (ÁEEK) and the universities, students can learn about and try out the services of the EESZT through an educational test system customised to their respective faculties. Health care platforms adapted to individual fields, identical to real-life conditions will be developed for training to allow their appropriate use for training. The module starts with theoretical training and continues with practical training consistent with faculty expectations and future working conditions. At faculties of general medical sciences, for example, based on available medical history documentation and eProfile data, students are required to choose the most appropriate pharmaceutical products for fictive patients and to write ePrescriptions. At the end of practical training, practical tasks are checked with the help of the EESZT Citizen Portal. Students of the faculty of pharmaceutical sciences can learn about the drug prescription function through the Healthcare Information System and can practice the entire process of drug dispensing with the help of the ePrescription identifier and TAJ based querying, together with verification of data registered in the EESZT. Dentist students practice use of the system within the framework of dental practices: after viewing the patient’s eProfile data they perform – only virtual – dental procedures, on which they issue an outpatient medical report, upload it to the EESZT system, which is also verified through the Citizen Portal.

Training courses are continuously held each academic year. Training is ensured through the advanced development of the curriculum to ensure that students receive up-to-date knowledge and receive information on the newest EESZT developments first hand.  

Students participating in classes organised jointly by the National Healthcare Service Center and universities will receive a certificate equivalent to completing the mandatory EESZT training course. This means that in possession of their stamp number, for qualification as an EESZT user, students are only required to present the certificate received at university and do not have to complete mandatory training.
