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.
“During the last four months the ministry has audited and revised the original programme of implementation for eHealth and prepared a new strategy,” Health Ministry spokesperson Katarína Zollerová said.
