New timelines for obligatory electronic form of clinical documents in Poland
Tuesday June 3rd, 2014
CSIOZ, Polish government eHealth agency, has proposed legislation changes to make first types of clinical documents obligatory in electronic form in 2016 and 2017. The changes are still pending, but proposed deadlines for all healthcare providers in Poland are:
- August 2016: Drug Prescription
- March 2017: Referral and Medical Equipment Prescription
All three types of documents will be standardised with HL7 CDA and are covered by the draft implementation guide, published couple of months ago.
