The main objective of the project is the development of an integrated information system for the "Merchant Seaman Healthcare Organisation" (IISMS) that will cover the organisation's operational needs including management, financial, health, inspection etc. The evaluation of the system's correct operation will be performed by connecting in a pilot stage 10 branches of the Merchant Seaman Healthcare Organisation as well as several health care providers: 20 clinical doctors, 5 pharmacies, 5 diagnostic centres and 2 private clinics.

The Merchant Seaman Healthcare Organisation aims to a) provide Medicare and hospitalization towards health protection and b) subvention of unemployed seamen and their families. Through IISMS - in the Internet and extrovert environment, the Merchant Seaman Healthcare Organisation provides the ground for future connectivity with all of the organisation's branches and regional offices as well as all co-operating health care providers towards interchanging information about all processes and operations of the Merchant Seaman Healthcare Organisation.

The system consists in three subsystems:

  • Management and Financial Operations (subsystem 1)
  • Health care and inspection Processes (subsystem 2)
  • Multiclinic Operational Support including laboratory and radiology information systems (LIS \ RIS) (subsystem 3)

ATKOSoft SA is to cover the implementation of subsystems 2 and 3, through providing and adapting its aMedLine suite of hospital information systems. Moreover, ATKOSoft participates in the project management and supply of installment, technical support and training services.

In addition, the Information Society S.A., for the benefit of the 1st Regional National Heath System (RNHS) of South Aegean, has signed a contract with the alliance of companies ATKOSoft, Unisystems, and ORCO for the implementation of the project "Provision of Training Services to the Regional Health Network of Cyclades".

The project aims to provide training to the personnel of the 1st RNHS of South Aegean for the integrated health information system and its subsystems. Training activities cover the application of IT systems in the health sector towards supporting several business processes that require the knowledge of IT systems e.g. financial and business co-ordination, medical applications, laboratory applications, etc.

The training activities consist in theoretical as well as practical training:

  • of the 1st RNHS in the use of applications of the Integrated Health Information System that operates in the RNHS
  • of the administrative personnel, including personnel of regional Health Centres, in the administrative and financial subsystems
  • in new processes and procurement practices (e.g. electronic transactions), accounting systems, new codifications etc., emphasizing in such a way that these transactions are incorporated into the business processes of health providers
  • in the administration of medical record data

ATKOSoft was formed in 1993, its shareholders and staff coming from the R&D and Management departments of a well-known Greek Company, ATKO SA, active in Informatics since 1983. Its main aim is to capitalize on the know-how of its members and staff in leading-edge information technologies, software tools and development skills, focusing mainly on the European and international markets. Today, more than 80 percent of the company's revenues come from international clients and activities.
