The Electronic Health Record (e-Health Record) is a nationwide system that integrates data from Estonia’s different healthcare providers to create a common record that every patient can access online.
Functioning very much like a centralized, national database, the e-Health Record actually retrieves data as necessary from various providers, who may be using different systems, and presents it in a standard format via the e-Patient portal. A result is a powerful tool for doctors that allows them to access a patient’s records easily from a single electronic file. Doctors can read test results as they are entered, including image files such as X-rays even from remote hospitals.
KSI Blockchain technology is used to ensure the integrity of retrieved electronic medical records as well as system access logs.
