Croatian Company Atos to Work on eHZZO Project for 19 Months

June the 4th, 2022 - The Croatian company Atos has been chosen as the more favourable bidder for a new Croatian Health Insurance Institute (HZZO) project worth a lot of money. The company will spend nineteen months on the project.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, the Croatian Health Insurance Institute (HZZO) has announced the start of the brand new eHZZO project, worth almost 115 million kuna, which aims to establish more efficient management and supervision within the healthcare system.

The construction of this brand new new system is being co-financed by the European Union (EU), and will enable easier communication with external users, as well as the high availability of data necessary for business process management and different forms of reporting.

"The Croatian Health Insurance Institute has one of the most important information systems in operation within the Republic of Croatia, so the eHZZO project will benefit all insurance policyholders through the better organisation and availability of the healthcare system," said Deputy Director of the Croatian Health Insurance Institute, Veronika Lausin.

The entire eHZZO project is worth a total of 114.7 million kuna, of which 85 percent is being financed with European Union money. The project will be worked on for the aforementioned period of nineteen months, and the strategic partner of the project, the Croatian company Atos, was selected as the most favourable bidder in the 2021 tender.

Three bidders, two consortia and one independent bidder appeared in the tender. The Croatian company Atos applied for the tender within a group consisting of a Czech company of the same name and a Macedonian enterprise called Nextsense, and their offer was the cheapest of all.

Ericsson Nikola Tesla and IN2 also competed together with CUSPIS. The third bidder was King ICT.
