“The second edition of the ISSS/V4DIS conference, which is focused on the informatisation of public administration, the implementation of modern ICT technologies and the overall digitization of the company, ended on Tuesday afternoon on 2 April in the Aldis Congress Center. Over a period of two days, more than 2,200 guests registered, about 200 presentations, discussions and workshops took place in the program, and over 100 companies and institutions presented themselves in the exposition.”
The exhibitors also included ICZ a.s., which had traditionally already been the main partner of the conference. It thus contributed with the presence of its specialists, businessmen, consultants and other team members at the ICZ stand, who diligently debated its existing, and even potential, clients in the depths of the conference and were also available for answering questions from various passers-by and with their own presentations.
The representatives of the Public Administration section, Petr Hron and Roman Zemánek, took part in one of the debates right on stage and were seconded by Michal Matoušek from backstage. During the block What Is New in the Basic Registers, the trio presented the project “Renewal of the Basic Register of Persons – ROS” implemented for the Czech Statistical Office. In the presentation, the auditorium was familiarized with the scope and composition of the project, which will not only ensure the operation and development of one of the key parts of the system of Basic Registers after the project’s sustainability period has ended but will also modernise the services provided on all layers of the IS ROS architecture so as to enable the system of Basic Registers and related eGovernment services to achieve the strategic goals of Digital Czech Republic.
The second presentation was prepared for the visitors of the conference by the Healthcare section, namely Michal Schmidt. He presented it in the eHealth II block in the Eliška Hall. In his part, he dealt with the topic of “Electronic Health in the Region”. During his presentation, he focused on the region as the base unit of eHealth, and he presented the benefits and opportunities of regional eHealth. He also spoke about the differences between individual regions, about interoperability with the purpose of sharing or exchanging data within one region, and last but not least, he spoke about NIS regional systems, PACS and archives for medical records.
Just like the overall spirit of the conference, which was based primarily on a consensus across the political spectrum regarding the direction of e-government development, the presentations themselves took place on a positive level and aimed to motivate and inspire other contracting authorities to implement their own projects. The next conference will again take place in Hradec Králové in the Aldis Congress Center on 20-21 April 2020.
