    Overview of Estonian e-Health ecosystem – collecting and managing Health data

    with Tõnis Jaagus, Head of Health Services at Health and Welfare Information Systems Center

    Innovative e-solutions have revolutionised Estonia’s healthcare system. Each person in Estonia that has visited a doctor has an online e-Health record that can be tracked. Identified by the electronic ID-card, the health information is kept completely secure and, at the same time, accessible to authorised individuals. KSI Blockchain technology is being used to ensure data integrity and mitigate internal threats to the data. Also, secure data exchange layer X-Road and the overall Estonian digital public administration has made Estonia as one of the leading e-health innovators in Europe

    This session will give an overview of the Estonian e-Health ecosystem and how different stakeholders benefit from that. In addition how e-Health solutions are chosen and prioritised.
