Frequently asked questions
This section covers all the questions that we were asked during the OMC. It will be updated regularly with answers to your questions.
Point of care means any investigation (diagnosis, tests, assessment and the like) and its documentation taken at the time of the consultation with the patient with instant availability of results. Store and forward is a temporary storage of information for transmission to its final destionation at a later time. It is e.g. needed to ensure that data is stored and available in a non-connected or low network bandwidth state. Normally information is sent to an intermediate station where it is kept and sent at a later time to the final destination.
The system shall have a complication scanning function that can be used to scan any complications the patient may have due to his/her chronic heart failure such as kidney damage or failure, heart valve problems, heart rhythm problems, liver damage, etc.
No, this kind of evidence is not needed at the tendering stage. It is sufficient to fill out the form provided by the EC here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/default/files/about_the_european_commission/eu_budget/legent_privcomp_en.pdf
SCMA has its own databases and platforms where health data is recorded. During the project we would like to check if there is a possibility of interoperability in between the actual ones that we are using and the new INCAREHEART solutions. Worst case scenario, if it is not possible to integrate both, we will use the new INCAREHEART solutions from scratch to manage chronic hearth failure.
The Patient Portal is property of the Shared Services of the Ministry of Health (SPMS) so the idea is, during the project and if we get good results from the evaluation of INCAREHEART, to analyse what are the possibilities to scale it up and involve SPMS process.
Yes, that is correct.
In principle, yes. The circumstances, techniques, and objectives of processing data should be clearly defined and elaborated.
Please have a look at the publicly-available documents we present at https://sys.sagliknet.saglik.gov.tr/dokumanonline/ for detailed information about integration with e-Nabiz. Information regarding integration with tele-radiology system, Central Doctor Appointment System, and 112 Emergency Applications are shared only after signature of contracts. User name and passwords are provided to the suppliers for test operations.
Phase II prototypes shall support the procurers’ local languages.
