Brnabic pointed out that the task of this body in the coming period will be to improve the health system, in order to achieve greater efficiency, connectivity and higher quality of health care, provide better cost control and achieve a better connected health system, including public and private sectors.
The introduction and connection of modern information systems in health care was announced, which will ensure the exchange of all relevant data. Citizens will be able to have a single electronic health card that will contain all relevant data from all health institutions, available to citizens and their doctors at all times.
In this way, as explained, time and costs will be saved, and doctors and medical workers will be given more time for treating patients.

The Prime Minister announced that with the introduction of the E-referral system at the beginning of March, the old system of paper instructions for patients will be completely excluded from use.
It was announced at the session that this body, chaired by Prime Minister Brnabic, and whose deputy chair is Health Minister Zlatibor Loncar, will hold regular meetings, and expert assistance will be provided by the Office for Information Technology and Electronic Administration, as well as all relevant institutions and business associations.
