e-Estonia Deep Dive Programme for Zilveren Kruis Achmea and Municipality of Amsterdam
Introduction to the e-state
Estonians are pathfinders, who have built an efficient, secure and transparent ecosystem that saves time and money. e-Estonia invites you to follow the digital journey. The initial part introduces and demonstrates the underlying mechanisms involved in digitizing a society, an overview of the main challenges and policies, an understanding of the infrastructure, e-solutions and services.
Digital Healthcare in Estonia
Each person in Estonia who has visited a doctor has his/her own online e-Health story that can be tracked. Around 1,3 million people have documents in the central database. HIS integrates data from Estonia’s different healthcare providers, creating a common record for each patient (since 2015, 99% of health data has been digitised, 97% of hospital discharge letters are sent to the central database). This gives the doctors easy access to the patient’s electronic records (test results, Xray images etc.). Patients have access to their own and to their underaged children`s records, and the records of persons who have given authorization to them for seeing their medical data. By logging into the patient portal (ID-card/m-ID), they can review past visits to the doctor, current prescriptions, and receive general health advice.
Estonian national health records system
The goal of digital healthcare is to provide the best possible support for healthcare service provision. This assumes seamless integration between different systems, clever use of state-of the art technical solutions and well optimised processes and information exchange. In Estonia, digital knowledge sharing and wide use of the digital tools in the everyday clinical work has become the norm. Nortal is one of the most experienced partners for healthcare digitalization in Estonia providing the leading hospital information system and being one of the main development partners for the Estonian National Health Information System. The presentation will give an insight to national digital health tools and Nortal’s lessons digitizing the healthcare.
Future of Healthtech
with Health Founders

They have developed novel polygenic risk score based genetic tests to estimate the risk of common cancers. The polygenic risk score sums up information over hundreds to thousands of genetic variants in the human genome. By combining the polygenic risk score with a person’s background (origin, age, and gender), we are able to calculate a person’s risk of developing cancer and provide medical advice on prevention and early detection.

with Eesti Geenivaramu
The Estonian Biobank has established a population-based biobank of Estonia with a current cohort size of more than 200,000 individuals (genotyped with genome-wide arrays), reflecting the age, sex and geographical distribution of the adult Estonian population. Considering the fact that about 20% of Estonia’s adult population has joined the programme, it is indeed a database that is very important for the development of medical science both domestically and internationally.
