The project Veneto ESCAPE, co-funded by DigitPA (Ministry of Public Administration and Innovation) and the Veneto Region, is an imitative thatallows the digital management of the whole cycle for signing, certifying, filing, extracting, distributing and storing up clinical digital reports while leaving their legal validity unchanged.
Launched in 2009, it will make it possible by 2013 for all the Veneto citizens, almost 5 million inhabitants, to download their clinical reports directly from the internet without having to go to the offices.
Arsenàl.IT coordinates the project and helps the member Authorities to develop the solution, with the standardization of the service where it already exists and focussing particular attention on interoperability, security, scalability and the use of internationally recognized standards.
The ESCAPE solution was developed by LHA n.9 Treviso, that is the transferring organization for the reuse project, and then replicated in all the other Veneto Region Local Health Authorities and Hospital Trusts (the reusing organizations or re-users).
In most of the LHA and Hospital Trusts, and soon in all, the whole digital management of the clinical document production is already working, producing a lot of advantages and savings both for Authorities and citizens.
As the solution ESCAPE has already being implemented, setting up and tested by the transferring entity, it allows enhancing not only its application, making it fitter for each different context, but even providing certified data and economic savings that can be applied to each single Authority and even at regional level.
Veneto ESCAPE represents a silent revolution that, day by day, allows the citizen of the Veneto Region to save time and money, producing a reduction of travels and costs connected to the healthcare process. A virtuous system that permits to enhance the efficiency of the service by reducing downtime.
