The article covers European experience of using EDI in the healthcare industry. All included examples were monitored and described by the International Healthcare Collaboration Project. The article contains examples of creating national communication structures in Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland as well as a few applications from hospitals, that enabled them to increase the effectiveness of their logistic and administrative processes.
