Asseco implements e-Health in Opolskie Voivodeship
Asseco, the largest Polish software vendor, will implement electronic medical documentation system and e-Health services in 5 hospitals and a complex of medical schools in the Opolskie region. It is one of the largest projects of this type in the region, and its value amounts to almost PLN 4 million gross.
Medical institutions throughout Poland are facing the challenge of implementing electronic medical documentation (EDM) and continuous improvement of the quality of services offered. The Opolskie Voivodeship has just made a big step in building e-Health in its region. The Opole Rehabilitation Center in Korfantów, the Independent Public Healthcare Center ZOZ in Głuchołazy, the Independent Public Healthcare Center in Kędzierzyn-Koźle, the Healthcare Center in Biała, Neurosis Therapy Center in Moszna and the Medical School Complex in Brzeg have signed an agreement with Asseco Poland - the leader among software providers for the health care sector. It includes implementation of the system of electronic medical documentation and increasing the functionality of the existing ones, launching new e-services for patients, as well as modernization of the integrated IT system (HIS), which runs in these institutions.
I am glad that we will be able to implement this project, so important for the whole voivodeship. Informatization of the health care system is conducted primarily with patients in mind and I hope that soon they will feel positive effects of building e-health in the Opolskie region, said Jan Butkiewicz, Director of the Health Care Division at Asseco Poland. An example of an innovative solution that will be implemented is a virtual assistant, thanks to which patients will be able to quickly find a suitable unit and a doctor who will take care of their illness.
The whole investment will take place within the framework of the project "Popularization of the e-services provision within the cooperation network of medical units and educational institution in the Opolskie Voivodeship".
