About us

The main subject of the Centrum e-Zdrowia (e-Health Centre) activity is to carry out tasks concerning the development of the information society, including organisation and protection of health, and supporting management decisions of the minister in charge of health, based on the conducted analyses.

We manage over 50 central IT systems and systems supporting disease prevention and patient treatment on a daily basis. E-health system (P1) is our flagship project, and our portfolio of digital services for citizens includes: Internetowe Konto Pacjenta (IKP), mojeIKP and Covid scanner applications, e-services: e-prescription, e-referral, e-registration for vaccinations, central e-registration, EU Covid Certificate, Electronic Medical Records. They are used by millions of Poles and tens of thousands of medical and pharmaceutical entities. Our data warehouses provide information that supports business analyses and management decisions of institutions responsible for shaping health policy in Poland. We are designing and testing tools using artificial intelligence that will support the physician's decision on patient diagnostics, disease treatment and prevention. In our daily work, we are guided by the belief that it is the people who constitute our greatest resource and value. We form a team of more than 350 experts who ensure the correct operation of the e-health ecosystem in Poland, providing new, user-friendly solutions to support health management.

The e-Health Centre is a unit funded from the national budget, and established by the Minister of Health.
We started our activities on August 1, 2000.

Our products

The state-of-the-art products and multifaceted ICT solutions we provide at the e-Health Centre form an innovative ecosystem of medical e-services.

    This is one of the most important ICT projects that forms the core of the subsystems, services, and applications that streamline healthcare planning and delivery processes.

    They support the daily work of medical entities, medical profess sionals, and public administration responsible for the functioning of the healthcare sector. They provide patients with digital tools to help manage their own and their loved ones’ health and medical professionals with solutions to support diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

    The portfolio of digital services includes e-prescription, e-referral, Internetowe Konto Pacjenta, the mojeIKP, the Electronic Medical Records, and the the Central Electronic Registration for COVID-19 vaccination.

    Our portfolio of digital services comprises IT systems that include medical registers, domain ICT systems, and systems that support prevention and treatment. Each was developed in accordance with the standards for data collection and exchange in medicine - Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise.

    Integrated public registers enable the collection and exchange of medical information. They provide knowledge about the healthcare sector and e-administration services. The registers are available on an IT platform that allows businesses and public administration entities to quickly and easily access the registered data.

    Domain-based IT systems streamline business processes for managing and accessing information in the healthcare system. They contribute to more effective healthcare planning by the administration, taking into account the current status of personnel resources, equipment, and availability of medicines.

    Systems that support prevention and treatment enable central management of key processes in this area. We are currently working on implementing a system that will support the development of transplantation medicine and a system to manage blood and blood components.

    We use cutting-edge analytical models and data technologies to design and deliver solutions that improve the public healthcare system.

    The e-Health Centre develops Business Intelligence solutions that enable gaining the knowledge and information necessary to make strategic and long-term decisions to improve the functioning of the healthcare sector in Poland.
    Our analyses support correct, secure, and smooth flow of information. These high-tech tools enable their users to observe and predict trends and prevent and respond to crises.

    The systems and registers we develop and manage collect and process the sensitive data of the citizens, medical centres and national institutions.

    Observance of the principles of safe data management is the key for the proper functioning of the e-health ecosystem. That is why we have appointed  a Cybersecurity Team.

    Similarly to other cybersecurity teams, we utilise the Traffic Light Protocol (TLP) and act in accordance with the guidelines issued by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity – ENISA. We secure the most sensitive areas and strive to ensure that the resources entrusted with us remain completely safe.
