1 1 The NETC@RDS eServices From Pioneering to Sustainability ? eHEALTH Week 2011 Budapest, 10th May 2011 By Noël Nader, GIE SESAM-Vitale, France

2 2 Delivering the Service to Citizens at the Point of

3 3 Description of the Service As of 1st June 2004 the European Health Insurance –eye-readable- Card (EHIC) is a proof of entitlement to non planned health care abroad but inside the EU/EEA. In case of EHIC no show or the EHIC is expired a Provisory Replacement Certificate (PRC) can be delivered by the competent institution. The NETC@RDS service is based on the following use case: “the EHIC dataset is optically captured from the EHIC by the HCP at the point of health care delivery. In case of EHIC no show or the EHIC is expired, then the national HIC/IDC can be accepted by Health Care Providers, based on an online proof of entitlement.” The EHIC dataset is processed for both statistic purpose and back office e-billing reconciliations

13 13 Outlook on the Way Forward Lessons learnt from NETC@RDS are useful at both national and European levels, e.g: –in BU, the NETC@RDS know-how is helpful to let the HIO specify the domestic ehealth insurance infrastructure and the related solutions –in FR, domestic solutions for on-line verification of patient entitlement to health care have been adapted in hospitals for local patients –In SK, GHIC HIO decided to adapt HCP authentication mechanisms from NETC@RDS to epSOS pilots –At EU level, the EHIC Provisory Replacement Certificate could be downloaded via EESSI (Electronic Exchange of Social Security Information) from the competent institution back-office alike the NETC@RDS form, … After 10 years of Eu-funding the contract with the EC is about to close Several Health Insurance Organisations (AT, DE, LN, NL, CZ, PL, SK) decided to continue to deliver the service beyond the EU-funding period: –in this aim, a new agreement has been prepared by the NETC@RDS consortium as a legal framework in addition to the General Agreement which binds the participating HIO on a permanent basis –A mature Business Plan has been completed as a roadmap for implementation of pan-European online and Web eHealth services

14 14 Oustanding Issues Although the Initial Deployment of the service met the project objectives, the criterias for a long term sustainability are adressed in the Business Plan: –A full integration of the service in the front desk applications should help to avoid parallel -manual and electronic- procedures –Cross-border on-line verifications requires that the corresponding back offices/repositories in the home country are ready and on-line –Since non-planed care could not be foreseen only a large scale deployment would help to cover most of the cases –While real-time on-line control can pay-off at the back-office level both the break-even point and ROI may be reached for the front desk applications provided that they are fully integrated in the local information system – Since starting positions and national/regional contexts may dramatically vary from one country to the other some countries might decide to implement on-line controls sooner than others, therefore: The NETC@RDS-like or similar solutions should remain scalable and adaptable to the domestic context Announced delivery of the EESSI infrastructure should be considered as the legal framework for innovative and cost-effective eHealth Insurance solutions Country specific portable documents (e.g. smart cards) should not be an obstacle to cross-border interoperability. Alternative solutions (.e.g. by Web Services) should be considered as well

15 15 Conclusion During the past decade, the NETC@RDS project has been capitalizing a lot of knowledge and experience with respect to the electronification of the EHIC dataset and the design of new « real time » pan-European services Lessons learnt and know-how have been suitable to the specifications of electronic solutions for both: –cross-border e-Health/e-Gov services (.e.g. eEHIC CWA, reports from ad hoc and working groups mandated by the CASSTM/TC, …) –National/domestic applications if the health insurance sector Some of the investors (HIO, Industry sponsors, …) decided to continue to provide the service Beyond the EU-funding period, thus, paving the way for full deployment at later stage and in a different context.e.g. EESSI, …
