Five weeks into Gesy, the pharmaceutical association said drug shortages continue to persist in pharmacies mainly due to shortcomings of the Gesy software, which the health insurance organisation (HIO
) assured it would be amending.
Not as satisfied as the HIO
, the chairman of the state health services (Okypy) Alekos Stamatis said on Monday that changes in public hospitals which must be made autonomous under Gesy are not moving at the required speed.
's deputy director, Athos Tsinotides, said that if the software connection is not completed on time, then pharmacists simply have to scan the drugs' barcodes twice, one to the system of the HIO
, the other to their own inventory system until the connection is made.
As a result, the HIO
was pressed to enter into talks with different groups of paediatricians, and to offer additional benefits to doctors willing to join the health scheme.
Athos Tsinontides, the HIO
's acting director, said on Thursday the problem in those glitches appears to lie in the relay of information between the government data warehouse and the Gesy registration system.
This is what the HIO
and the health ministry should be single-mindedly focusing on securing in the next few weeks, because winning the publicity war would be completely meaningless if we end up with a dysfunctional scheme.
Is the HIO
now going to pay doctors to examine people with a sore throat or stomach upset at 9pm when they can wait until the next day?
He also added that HIO
personnel and health workers, including doctors, will increase to provided better services to patients.
