Eficode offered reliable and agile development partnership to create smooth electronic services in social and health care services.
About the Service
2M-IT eServices is a regional, comprehensive solution for electronic transactions. It enables the development of versatile and smooth multi-channel services independent of basic systems and organizational or municipal structure. The customer experience improves as citizens’ information is available across organizational boundaries.
2M-IT eServices includes public health-related content reviewed by experts and the self-service section for electronic services. 2M-IT eServices is an important tool for social and health care professionals who serve customers by advising and guiding them via the eServices platform. The service includes, for example, secure messaging, appointment booking, forms and seeking treatment. The management of many service processes, such as for the maternity and child welfare clinic and laboratory services, is also carried out using the eServices platform. Customers can use the service on both the web and mobile. In the future, eServices will be developed modularly in cooperation with customers.
Versatile and Demanding Development
As a system, eServices is broadly integrated into many background systems. People’s personal health information that is managed in the service also sets special requirements for the development work. For example, every instance of data processing must leave a log entry so that, if necessary, it is possible to trace who has done or viewed what in the service. Data protection must be of a high standard.
Future plans for social and health care must also be taken into account. A non-regional approach is sought in the implementation so that citizens can freely choose where to conduct their business. The system must also meet the requirements of the Data Protection Regulation of the EU.
In the spring of 2015, 2M-IT (former Medi-IT) launched a major development project to build a new comprehensive solution for electronic services. 2M-IT needed reliable and agile development partners. During the tendering process, Eficode convinced with its experience and competence.
