The report "ICTs in the National Health System" 2010, presents the main results achieved by the Healthcare Online programme, which forms part of the Avanza Plan.

 
This Plan is being carried out by the State Secretariat for Telecommunications and the Information Society, through Red.es and in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Policy and the autonomous regions. The report also analyses the progress made in the last few years with regard to the introduction and use of systems such as electronic prescriptions, electronic health records or appointments via the Internet within the National Health System.
Although the report has been produced within the framework of the Healthcare Online programme, its content goes beyond the programme¿s operational indicators in order to give a broader picture of the extent to which ICTs have been incorporated in the National Health System, focusing on aspects such as connectivity of healthcare centres and the availability of services such as appointments via the Internet or electronic prescriptions. The production of this publication has been possible thanks to the collaboration of all the Regional Health Services and the Ministry of Health and Social Policy. They all agreed on the need to carry out a synthetic updating of the data presented in 2007 in the first report "ICT in the National Health System" to continue offering a comprehensive overview of the adoption of ICTs in the area of healthcare.
Two years on, as the data presented in this report highlights, notable advances can be observed within the National Health System. The report also identifies the opportunities for improvement and the challenges that will guide the work of healthcare administrations over the next few years. Specifically, the projects to be undertaken during the second phase of the Healthcare Online programme, which will run until 2012, will continue to make progress on two fronts: expansion of the National Health System¿s Digital Health Record project and consolidation of electronic health records and electronic prescription systems in all autonomous regions. All of this will allow us to progress towards the goal of ensuring that citizens¿ health records are available when and where required in order to provide better healthcare.
