Since its establishment in 1992, the Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia (ZZZS) has been dedicated to informatisation of its operations and has been one of the key providers of informatisation of the entire health care environment.
The most important historical milestones in this field are:
- In 1992, ZZZS ensured the basic hardware and software for providers to support their administrative work.
- 1996-1998, ZZZS established the electronic exchanging of information for charging of health care services.
- 1998-2000, ZZZS introduced the electronic health insurance card.
Currently ZZZS reorganises the card system with the introduction of an on-line operation. The new generation of cards supports a direct exchange of data among health care providers, the Institute and all three insurance companies that offer voluntary health insurances. In the new system, the card functions only as the key to the data access for an insured person.
