DISCUSSION on "ePN: a service that works"

/ Lecture
This year, the state launched a new electronic PN (proof of incapacity for work)  service. The service removes the chaos caused by paper PN reporting. A complicated form with several papers and annoying waiting at branches should become a thing of the past. Is it really so? What was the motivation for this service? Why did we have to wait so long for her? What are the first usage data and statistics? What can be improved? And what other services can we look forward to?

MICHAL ILKO, SOCIAL INSURANCE AGENCY IN SLOVAKIA: "Electronic PN/ePN (Electronic Certificate on Temporary Working Incapacity) significantly simplifies the procedure for the insured in a life situation when the incapacitated person should be focused on treatment. It is the first interdepartmental service of the State of such scale, where obligatory steps do not have to be done by the citizen, but instead the entire process is performed by the involved authorities. Via mutual cooperation, we save time and effort for doctors, employers and especially for citizens. The successful start is represented by more than 100,000 issued ePNs which constitute over 27 percent of all issued PNs.“

PETER LUKÁČ, NATIONAL HEALTH INFORMATION CENTER: "Electronization of healthcare makes sense. It reduces the administrative burden and makes the work of doctors more efficient, makes life easier for people and provides clean data for the creation of the state's health policy strategy."
