RIGA - In the coming three years, EUR 10 million will be invested in further development of the e-health system, said National Health Service director Edgars Labsvirs in an interview with commercial TV3 chanel.

In his words, before the Christmas holidays, the e-health system was overloaded, but during the holidays the databases were moved to new servers, therefore there are no more stability problems. There is ongoing work on development of the system - the third stage of the project which is 85 percent funded by the EU.

He admitted that health care in Latvia lags behind other sectors in digitalization, and there is yet a huge potential in the sector.
