ZZZS, the Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia, has awarded a contract to the consortium formed by XIRING and its Slovenian partner LOGINA to upgrade the professional health card readers for the next generation of the Slovenian health card scheme.
Slovenia was one of the first European countries to introduce a national health insurance card system back in the 1990s. The system was initially developed in 1996 and implemented nationally in 2000. The upgrade of the system, known as eHealth2010, aims to provide healthcare professionals with secure and reliable access to key information from electronic medical records and other databases used in their day-to-day work.
Under the terms of the four year deal, signed between the consortium and ZZZS, XIRING and LOGINA will replace, install and maintain 28 desktop card readers for the Slovenian eHealth programme. XIRING says its Prium-3S solution will be adapted to meet the Slovenian requirements, notably at the on-board application level.
