How Estonia is Putting the ‘E’ in ‘E-Health’

07.06.2017

Ain Aaviksoo the Deputy Secretary General of E-services and Innovation, at the Ministry of Social Affairs told Digital Health Today about Estonian business culture, its outstanding infrastructure, and the opportunities for outside companies and individuals to do research and business in Estonia.

Estonian companies have transformed the experience with telephony with Skype, and banking with Transferwise, and they have their sights set on transforming the way people experience health and wellness as well.

In his role as the Deputy Secretary General of E-services and Innovation, Ain works to combine medicine and informatics to disrupt healthcare in a great way. Estonia has a long history of digital innovation across public and private services. The country has successfully migrated traditional “brick and mortar” activities to online, and implemented things like electronic voting and even an electronic residency program that is open to anyone around the world.

Ain told Digital Health Today about the various services and programs available in Estonia, and how they are positioned to help individuals and companies who would like to leverage the infrastructure they have in place.
