Health insurance cardThe TS System manages the sending of the TS-CNS (Health Card / National Service Card) to all patients. The patient’s tax code and the European Health Care Card (EHIC) coexist in a single support, which guarantees to receive health care in all countries of the European Economic Area.
In particular, the Health Card is a personal document that is issued to all citizens who are entitled to the services provided by the National Health Service (SSN).Since 2011, the Health Card has been replaced by the new version equipped with a microchip: the Health Card – National Service Card (TS-CNS).
Once activated, the CNS version also allows access to the online services of public administrations.Back to the projects listElectronic recipeWith the diffusion of the electronic recipe or dematerialized recipe, paper support is eliminated, with a view to digitizing the country system.
The electronic sending of prescription data by accredited healthcare facilities and prescribers takes place through a reliable and safe technological infrastructure, which allows for complete control and reporting of pharmaceutical and specialist healthcare expenditure throughout its life cycle. .
The TS System, through the “Pharmaceutical Handbook” database, verifies:
The correctness of the AIC (identification code for medicinal products for human use) of the prescribed drug;Membership in the same AIFA equivalence group of the drug;Compilation of the recipe according to national regulations;The inclusion of the AIFA note for the drugs that require it.
The main objectives and advantages deriving from the Electronic Recipe project were:facilitate the relationship between doctor-patient;further enhancement of the quality and timeliness of controls for monitoring health expenditure and verifying prescriptive appropriateness;the simplification of the management processes of paper documents by the
ASLs, doctors and public and private healthcare providers that have an agreement;the reduction of errors, duplications, possible scams and falsifications;the immediacy of regulatory adjustments, managed digitally;the digital management of regional Therapeutic Plans;improve the quality and usability of the system data
As for the technological aspects, the project is based on:
the real-time interconnection between the Central Health Card Reception System (SAC) and prescribers, pharmacies and public / private facilities under agreement;the attribution of a unique identification code at national level to each recipe.
National Register of Patients (ANA)One of the challenges envisaged by the process of modernization and digitization of the Health System concerns the integration of the systems of the National Resident Population Registry (ANPR) with the registries of the Regions / ASL.
It is in this vision that the project of the National Registry of Patients (ANA) arises, which by integrating with the TS System will allow the circularity of the information in the Electronic Health Record.
To this end, the ANA will ensure to the ASL / SASN (Health care services for seafarers) the availability of data and tools for carrying out the functions of its competence and guarantees access to the data contained therein by public administrations. for the related institutional purposes. The main supported processes are:
the management of personal and administrative data of the clients of the National Health Service (SSN), such as registration with the SSN and transfers of residence / assistance, the choice and revocation of the doctor, the management of exemptions, etc., as well as of the foreigners to whom it is assistance provided;
the alignment of the client’s identification data and the certain identification of the clients, as part of the;the provision of personal and administrative data of the patients to the governance systems of the NHS, both at the national level (New Health Information System of the Ministry of Health) and at the regional level.
In this solution, it becomes even simpler, more immediate and secure not only to uniquely identify the information relating to each patient in the National Health System, but also to manage access to data by public administrations for the related institutional purposes.
