Three years and 300 000 €
Hannes Danilov, the member of the board at the Health Insurance Fund
We are pleased to say that we have a digital prescription system that is a model for other countries
In the search for efficiency and excellence, the Estonian Health Insurance Fund and the Ministry of Social Affairs started the project of e-Prescription in Estonia.
The paper prescription system, that was in use before, wasted the time of all parties involved in the prescribing and buying/selling of medications.
The scarce resource of a doctor’s appointment time was wasted on writing recurring prescriptions and the patients had to spend time waiting for their appointment.
Some prescriptions would get lost, some would include the wrong percentage of subsidy by the Health Insurance Fund. The collection of statistics and data is costly and all parties must waste time on reporting the same data at different times. The new system was designed as a centralized and paperless system to be used by all doctors, patients and pharmacies.
The central system was developed by the state in cooperation with Helmes. The information systems of medical practices and pharmacies were integrated and updated by their service providers. Helmes also developed a central online interface for doctors and pharmacies who have less prescriptions to process or whose developments were not ready by the time of launching e-Prescription.

Helmes has partnered TeliaSonera’s Estonian affiliate for many years in developing a demand-driven supply chain management information system. In close cooperation with the client, the system was developed in order to minimize lost sales with the optimum amount of goods in stock at any time.
Satisfaction with the solution as well as a positive cooperation experience provided Helmes with the opportunity to present an offer in TeliaSonera’s central procurement of a Common Demand and Purchase
Planning Tool (CDPPT) which would:
- maintain maximum availability of consumer electronics;
- reduce man-hours spent fulfilling it; and
- develop an automated monitoring module so that errors in logistics processes would be discovered as soon as possible.
Competing with world-class software providers’ products, Helmes was chosen to develop a custom solution that would precisely reflect TeliaSonera’s innovative supply chain management process.
Compared to its competitors, Helmes offered maximum flexibility and agility, which were considered crucial when providing the shortest time to market in order to reduce the payback period of the investment.
TeliaSonera provides network access and telecommunication services that help people and companies communicate in an easy, efficient and environmentally friendly way.
Helmes has launched Message Hub for financial institutions provided by NasdaqOMX, a message exchange environment, which is easily compatible with other modern post-trade solutions available in Europe.
Message Hub is a solution made for data exchange in real time between securities market participants and it guarantees a data exchange security level that corresponds to international standards.
The aim of the project was to simplify and unify communications between internal subsystems and external clients. Securities settlement and servicing of corporate actions is implemented by exchanging data between the banks and brokerage companies and the securities depositories of the Baltic countries using special encoded messages: they will be sent via the new data exchange service Message Hub.
Up to now, market participants in each of the countries were sending their messages using systems that differed from country to country. The new data exchange service is a significant step towards the Baltic securities market harmonization and development and will make settlement in the Baltic market even more convenient.

The top security offered by message hub deserves a special mentioning, since the aspect is critical for financial markets
