IBM Helps Government of Slovenia to Build Smart Health Insurance System
Date:5/13/2009

alth Insurance Institute. "Although a number of countries across the globe have electronic health insurance systems, Slovenia is the first to integrate both public and private insurance organizations -- all national partners in healthcare."

With the former system, the patient's insurance data was stored on the actual insurance card rather than on a remote server. Patients were required to update their insurance data on the card every few months at self-service terminals. The former system, from today's perspective, was costly, inefficient and inaccurate for health insurance providers as well as being inconvenient for patients. With confidential data stored on the cards, it was also less secure. Over the next six months this system will be phased out.

Since the completion of the pilot at Franc Derganc General Hospital in March 2009, the new system has been extended to over 100 healthcare institutions in the Gorenjska and Primorska regions. Planned to be fully operational by January 2010, the new system will be used by approximately 30,000 health professionals and more than two million patients in health institutions across Slovenia.

Implementation of the new electronic health insurance system and the creation of the integrated IT infrastructure pave the way for additional functionality such as electronic prescriptions and electronic medical records.

"IBM has extensive global experience in helping governments to create smarter systems that save money, create operational efficiencies and improve the quality of life for citizens," said Roman Koritnik, General Manager of IBM Slovenia.
