Estonian primary care Key facts 787 patient lists 1.251.385 insured patients FDs: private entrepreneurs 100% funded by Estonian Health Insurance Fund Total annual budget: ca EUR 40M Monthly IT budget: ca EUR 75 per doctor
Computer literacy and use of internet in primary care In 2003 there were 2.369 workers in the primary care units (doctors and nurses) 1920 were using computers daily (81%), from those 1872 were using computers with internet connection (97%) all together 1207 computers, from those 1147 computers with internet connection 1350 doctors work in the primary care units 1242 use computers daily (92%), from those 1237 use computers with internet connection (99%)
Digitalization in Estonian primary care 1994 – 1998: First software solutions for FDs Purely structured, mainly text fails 1998: EHIF financial support for FDs Software oriented to the needs of EHIF First FD’s started using digital patient records only Since 2001: All claims’ data sent to EHIF digitally 3 – 4 local software companies Software architecture: only local installations Financial aspect: expensive license fees + monthly service fees
Flaws arising from existing architecture Data not available in time-critical situations; Most data exchanged and stored on paper; Medical decisions often based only on data received from patients; Patients tied to their FD: mobile patient loses health record history; Collected data not comparable and exchangeable; Software not corresponding to the requirements of processing delicate personal information; Expensive maintenance and updating of software FDs expected to be IT power-users
