Healthcare

Innovative e-solutions are the core of the Estonian healthcare system. Patients and doctors, not to mention hospitals and the government, benefit from the convenient access and savings that e-services have delivered.

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. The use of KSI Blockchain technology in the system ensures data integrity and mitigates internal threats to the data.

 

e-Health Record

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.
