HP to Move Poland's National Centre for Health Information Systems to
Electronic Patient Records 
New Software, Services Will Improve Secure Data Access, Patient Care 
WARSAW, POLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 --  HP (NYSE: HPQ)
Enterprise Services Poland today announced it has signed a $27
million agreement with National Centre for Health Information Systems
(CSIOZ), a Polish Ministry of Health entity that is involved in the
development of an e-health environment for the country.  
Under the terms of the agreement, HP will build and deploy a portal
for collecting, analyzing and sharing digital health records across
Poland. Better access to health records for authorized users will
improve patient service quality and facilitate better health-related
decisions at the government level. 
HP will work with CSIOZ to build a portal that patients can use to
access their electronic health records. The companies also will
develop web applications for use by health service providers,
pharmacies and public health insurance payers.  
The portal, to be developed by HP's Application Development and
Integration Services teams, will enable interoperability between
CSIOZ and other health service providers or pharmacies. This portal
will enable online access to medical procedure information including
critical medical records, prescribed and filled prescriptions,
referrals and dismissals.  
Healthcare service providers and public administration authorities
will have access to information about medical procedure services such
as drug reimbursements, contract details and billing. As a result,
healthcare providers, administrators and patients will have a
comprehensive view of a patient's overall health to make more
informed healthcare decisions. 
"Technology today enables us to securely gather and analyze medical
information and use it to improve healthcare for everyone in Poland,"
said Marcin Kedzierski, director, National Centre for Health
Information Systems. "The advance is being made with the highest
level of accuracy and according to international standards." 
The system will meet European Union (EU) requirements for the
long-term social-economic reform program (Lisbon Strategy) that
promotes an information society in the EU and encourages
interoperability between EU electronic platforms in healthcare. 
"With electronic patient records, providers and patients will have
instant access to a complete picture of a patient's health that will
help guide better, fact-based decisions," said Pawel Czajkowski,
managing director, HP Poland. "HP has a strong track record for
delivering eHealth solutions in EU countries, which has allowed the
team to gather unique knowledge, along with experience that will help
Poland improve healthcare for its people." 
HP will deliver these services from CSIOZ facilities in Warsaw,
HP also has delivered a series of pilot projects for CSIOZ including
an e-prescription pilot.
