Asseco will ensure stable operation of IT system at National Health Fund
Asseco Poland has signed an agreement with the National Health Fund for the maintenance and development of the Information System for Supporting the Activities of the National Health Fund (NFZ - SIWDzNFZ). The contract has been concluded in a consortium with Kamsoft for a period of 4 years, with the possibility of extension for one or two years. Its value amounts to PLN 153.5 million.
Under the agreement, the consortium will be responsible not only for subscriptions and the maintenance of the IT system, but also for new services enabling the process of data integration and migration. Ultimately, they will be used during the change of the current IT system of the National Health Fund into a new one.
Asseco has been a reliable partner for the Polish healthcare system for many years. We have been cooperating with the National Health Fund for 3 years now and I am glad that we will be able to continue this work. Systems such as SIWDZ in the National Health Fund are responsible for the settlement of healthcare services used by millions of patients in Poland. Therefore, their processing must be stable. We understand our social responsibility as a supplier, and therefore we will make every effort to ensure the necessary security of our services, said Krzysztof Groyecki, Vice President of the Management Board, Asseco Poland.
