eHealth system still not in sight

AN ELECTRONIC health care system on which Slovakia has spent tens of millions of euros, still remains unrealised. The project – in preparation since 2007 and intended to introduce patient e-books, a national health portal and electronic prescription of medicines – should have started last year. The Health Ministry has now halted the project, known as eHealth, the Pravda daily wrote in early March.
