Poland’s Podlaskie province seeks open source support for its eHealth system

Published on: 27/08/2020

The Podlaskie province in Poland is looking for support services for its eHealth system, which is built on top of open source components including Java application servers Jboss (renamed Wildfly) and Apache Tomcat.

This week, the administration, based in the city of Białystok, published a call for tender, seeking at least two IT administrators experienced in Jboss, Wildfly and Tomcat, and other proprietary software solutions.

The province uses Jboss and Wildfly to manage computing resources required to create (Java-based) web applications. With Tomcat, it maintains a Java web server.

The province’s eHealth system lets citizens manage healthcare-related services, such as making appointments with medical professionals and viewing their medical records. The website also provides general information about healthcare services in the province, and healthcare-related information and news.

Likewise, the portal offers online services to medical professionals.

The portal has been running since early 2015, according to the oldest news items (including several ‘Lorem ipsum’ items: meaningless text that is commonly used for testing and demonstration purposes).

The deadline for submitting offers is 29 September. The award criteria given in the request suggest that the 10-month contract will most likely be awarded to the lowest-price offer.
