Second stage of the e-health Centre project

The e-health Project (P1), which has been implemented by the e-health Centre since February 2017, aims to build an electronic platform of public health services allowing to improve the processes related to planning and implementation of health services, monitoring and reporting on their implementation, access to information about the services provided and publishing information in the area of health care.

In the next stage of the work of the e-health Center, the following services are to be launched: ordering e-prescriptions, central e-registration and e-visits available to patients from the level of the Patient’s Internet Account. All these activities are conducive to the development of telemedicine in our country.

As part of this investment, a free application of the Patient’s Internet Account and the Clinic was launched, as well as an e-prescription and e-direction (the solution will be obligatory from 8 January 2021). In total, from the start of e-prescriptions until 23 July 2020, almost 290 million e-prescriptions have already been issued to over 25 million patients in Poland.
