Every citizen of Kazakhstan to have its own electronic health passport
Minister said that the Office is implementing a number of investment projects for the transition to the new information technologies in order to implement the President’s instructions, announced in the Message “Third Modernization of Kazakhstan: global competitiveness,” to provide the necessary health information.
In particular, work is under way to create a unified integration platform, where every citizen will have electronic health passport and each health worker – private office. The platform will allow all public and private hospitals to integrate their corporate information systems and work on “one window” principle. As a result, patients will be able to take an active role in collecting data about their own state of health and to diagnose their own condition without visiting medical institutions. A medical staff gets all the information about the patient who treats in electronic form, which will be consulted remotely. This, according to Y.Birtanova will change the relationship between patients and medical staff.
Also, independent online record patients to health care providers, consulting in real time and monitor patients using IT-technologies will be gradually introduced. Internet and mobile applications to record and attach to the clinics will be developed.
