Configuration of E-health System in Real Time Pandemics

This thesis has been prepared for the interuniversity postgraduate program in Health Care Management and Health Care Informatics. Its purpose is to study the current situation of Pandemic Response Information Systems and to make suggestions for the improvement of the situation by creating a Single Pandemic Response Information System. In the first chapter, the needs and challenges of Health Information Systems are mentioned and a brief analysis of the situation which exists at the global and Greek level is presented. In the second chapter, a bibliographic review is made regarding Health Information Systems for Pandemic Response at the global  and Greek level and there is a comparative study of them. The third chapter presents the case studies of three Greek Pandemic Response Information Systems:, the Vaccination Appointment System and the Vaccination Certificates in Digital Form. Furthermore, the fourth chapter presents the pilot design of an Integrated Pandemic Response System at the Greek level. The need for a single system, as well as its requirements, emerges based on the analysis of the questionnaires completed by ordinary users and by professional users of the Pandemic Response Information Systems. In the fifth and last chapter, the conclusions, challenges, limitations and future goals of the thesis are mentioned.
