Back from Estonia
Under the red thread health and blockchain a group of health experts from France and the UK, immersed themselves in the heart of the Estonian health ecosystem with DigeeTrips. Expectations ranged from discovering the functioning of the Estonian health system to Estonia’s eHealth strategy and its implementation to understanding the ecosystem and the role of the health system, by mapping the actors involved, assessing the contribution of Blockchain, and thinking about the creation of local partnerships.
Days rich in meetings and lessons followed one another during this specific study trip which made it possible to address among others: the general organization of the health system based on the state platform (X-Road), the Dematerialized patient journey, research on the genome, the declination of solutions from the X-Road in a hospital, the e-ambulance which allows the emergency services to be in possession of the complete medical file of the patient before his arrival on square. The sector’s leading startups, as well as companies developing IT solutions dedicated to the sector…
Among the latter, Industry62’s e-Death solution for the state illustrates the narrowness of private/public cooperation. Intended 2019, this solution will allow relatives of a deceased to no longer have to perform all the administrative procedures inherent in a death. What was the motivation to launch this new service? Always and always a will to simplify the life of the citizen and in this case to spare him painful steps during a difficult episode. The state citizen-centric does not stop innovating and will be at the service of its citizens and their relatives from the first to the last day. The internationalization of the model is already underway. Currently, Estonia is putting in place a system of interoperability of health data with Finland. A cooperation that could presage the development of a new European health system.
