State-run health insurer Všeobecná Zdravotná Poisťovňa is launching a project to create an internet patient book without a public tender, the Sme daily reported on August 6.
The insurer is negotiating the project with a company that includes former Smer party deputy Edita Angyalová on its board of directors. Health Minister Ivan Valentovič is a Smer nominee.
Pavel Nechala, from Transparency International, says that it is apparent that there is a political link in this case. He alleges that putting Angyalová on the board of directors was intended to make sure the company wins the order.
