Health expenditure data to support the pre-filled tax returnAmong the various data that the Revenue Agency processes in order to be able to prepare the Pre-filled declaration, there are the health costs incurred by citizens during the year.

Since 2015, a growing number of health professionals have been reporting data on health costs of private citizens to the with almost total coverage of the possible types of providers. The TS System annually:
acquires over 770 million expense documents;by over 260 thousand health workers (doctors and dentists, health professionals, pharmacies and parapharmacies, specialist structures, etc);for a total amount of over 34 billion euros.
The TS System provides citizens with the online Healthcare Expense Consultation function which allows them to view the expenses acquired, with the ability to report any inconsistencies in the data to the operator.
Furthermore, in February of each year, citizens can exercise the right to object to the sending of expenditure data to the Revenue Agency, indicating which health payments they wish not to be used for the preparation of their tax return.Find out more:Health Card Project Portal – 730 Healthcare ExpensesBack to the projects listHealth exemptions for income

Electronic Health Record (ESF)The project relating to the creation of the national infrastructure for the interoperability of Electronic Health Records represents one of the most important innovations in the field of e-health.
The collection of documentation relating to the entire clinical history of a patient thanks to the Electronic File allows a qualitative and quantitative enhancement of the information useful in order to provide the most suitable health services.
In fact, through the Electronic File, all information is stored and can be consulted in a timely manner, making the use of resources even more effective, pursuing the appropriateness of care and enhancing health planning tools.
This project is made possible by the complete digitization of health documents through standards shared by the regional and European electronic files. The digital documents, stored on secure systems, are accessible to healthcare professionals only after the consent of the citizens, who will be able to consult the access information at any time.
