The digitization of healthcare from 2025.

Members of the healthcare Alliance gathered today at their first regular annual meeting, during which the architecture of the eHealth record system was presented for the first time, along with the priorities of the Alliance's work for this year.

Vukašin Radulović, the president of the healthcare Alliance, presented the members with the results of the Alliance's work from the previous year, among which participation in the preparation of eHealth records was highlighted as one of the key activities.

By introducing eHealth records, the medical history and treatment of citizens from healthcare centers, hospitals, state and private practices will be unified for the first time in one place. Access to eHealth records will be granted to the chosen phzsician, specialists authorized, emergency medical services, medical commissions, or phzsicians authorized bz the patient. This will expedite the process through the healthcare system, preent redundant tests, and reduce the need for patients to return to their general practitioners for new referrals, ultimetely contributing to more efficient treatment outcomes. Its full implementation is expected January 1, 2025. Special attention will also be paid to data protection, and the entire process will be conducted according to the same standards as other applications and system of state institutions.

Among the priorities of the Alliance for 2024 are the adoption of a new action plan for digitization in healthcare, further development of eHealth, and the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

The meeting also featured the first presentation of the ’’EU for health system’’ project, which will be implemented in Serbia by UNDP and the World Health Organization, witch the support of the European Union. The project aims to improve the resilience of the public health system in Serbia and its capacity to respond to public health threats in line with EU and international standards. The project focuses on decision-making support in responding to disasters and health crises, strengthening citizen support, improving the communication skills of healthcare workers in crisis situations, and digitizing healthcare services.

The aforementioned topics of the meeting represent only a part of all the processes expected to be implemented in 2024, and members of the Alliance are encouraged to continue actively participating and contributing to all activities as they have done so far.
