State health insurer skips tender

STATE-RUN health insurer Všeobecná Zdravotná Poisťovňa is launching a project to create an online patient information database 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, the SITA newswire reported.
