The process of defining and implementing of fundaments changes in the Polish healthcare IT systems is ongoing: new central medical registries are being created, new information sharing requirements come into force, medical records migrate to electronic ones, e-prescriptions, e-assignments and other documents are introduced.
The burden of implementing all this changes will be on entrepreneurs working in IT healthcare area, while financing all the modifications will fall on medical entities.
It is our belief that community of providers and users of these solutions is not integrated enough and is in need of a broad, strong and effective representative, who could be a worthy counterpart to governmental institutions.
The legal form of Chamber of Commerce gives such a representative a special empowerment, because it benefits from privileges granted to self-governance bodies and is strongly founded in the law.
Every entrepreneur who is a provider of a user of IT healthcare solutions can become a PIIM member, irrespective of her legal form.
In practive, everyone who produces, provides or simply uses IT systems, hardware, software or IT services in healthcare industry meets the statutory requirements.
Members of the Chamber include among others:
