Baku, Azerbaijan, June 12
By Huseyn Valiyev - Trend:
Azerbaijan’s Ultra Technologies IT company has started developing software for compulsory medical insurance system, the company told Trend.
The State Agency for Compulsory Medical Insurance acts as the customer of the project.
The compulsory insurance system is one of the components of the e-healthcare project. Software development is carried out as part of the e-healthcare infrastructure formation project stipulated in the strategic roadmap for the development of telecommunications and information technologies adopted earlier.
The value of expected investments in the project’s implementation until 2020 is forecast at 276 million manats. The project’s implementation is aimed at ensuring effective management of the healthcare system and providing quality services to patients.
The e-healthcare program will combine such components as “e-health information”, “electronic registration”, “digital images” and “e-prescription”.
As part of the project to create an integrated e-healthcare system, the Agency plans to create a central medical accounting system and integrate various platforms and information systems into a single healthcare network.
The roadmap for the development of telecommunications and information technologies envisages that the formation of e-healthcare infrastructure will make it possible to save budget expenditures worth 50 million manats and seven percent of healthcare expenditures until 2020.
