Bulgaria: Fingerprint Authentication Mandatory in Bulgarian Hospitals As Of November 1 BGNES

The new system for fingerprint authentication has been introduced in all health facilities in Bulgaria as of November 1.

As of Tuesday, all hospitals operating with the National Health Insurance Fund (NZOK) will have to use the devices and register patients with them, if hospitals are to be paid for their activities at the end of each month.

All 369 contract partners of NZOK in the country have signed the additional agreements to their individual contracts declaring their readiness to work with the system.

The pilot implementation of the system started in August in the 20 biggest hospitals in the country and was implemented in stages in the remaining hospitals.

According to the chief expert of Information Processes and Security of Information Directorate, Martin Bankov, the system is easy to operate and the actual registration of patients takes no longer than 2 minutes.
