Netherlands firm implements Algerian e-health program
Hospital Information Technology Europe, March 31, 2008
A Netherlands-based digital security firm has begun to roll out Algeria's first e-health project. A pilot project comprised 700,000 smartcards in five regions of the north African country. The system will result in the issuing and management of seven million smartcards used by healthcare beneficiaries and providers. The aim is for hospitals and other healthcare institutions to securely manage patient records securely and to verify patient benefits.
