The Hospital Association, one of the major partners in the creation of the digital health system, said the recent criticism over the development of the state's e-services will drive them to further improve the digital healthcare system.

“Colossal effort has gone into developing the e-health services. The Audit Office report is partially unfair in its criticism, but will give us a good thrust to review the e-health services and to decide how to continue applying the projects,” the head of the association, Urmas Sule, said in a press release on Wednesday.

He said tasks must be reorganized and all healthcare workers must be involved to turn the e-health project around.

The Audit Office this week released a critical report on the development of the nation's e-services, saying that three out of the four larger projects are yet to be fully implemented, and costs have escalated from a planned 2.8 million to 15 million euros, and are increasing.
