Successful Implementation of the ‘eHealth Services’ Project
Lithuania’s “eHealth Services” Project is part of the development of a national eHealth system by the country’s Ministry of Health. Jointly funded by the Lithuanian Government and the European Union, the project entails the design, installation and operation of hospital information systems (HIS) in three regional healthcare institutions of Lithuania, the Kaunas University of Medicine Hospital, the Klaipeda University Hospital and the Vilnius University Hospital Santariskiy Klinikos.
The aim of the project is to implement a uniform international standards based electronic health records and healthcare system (NESS) covering the entire country, which would enable healthcare institutions to exchange data concerning patients’ treatment and lab results.
Also being developed under the framework of this project are recommendations and draft legislation on electronic health data.
