With the assistance of ICT applications and networks, Flanders aims to support and facilitate smooth cooperation between the various primary care actors by efficiently sharing patient records, increasing the quality and availability of the records and consequently reducing the administrative burdens, wherever the patient is staying. In order to examine which of the components that are available on the market can be used to develop the Primary Care Safe, the Flemish authorities launched a market consultation in December 2010. Companies that can supply or develop modules have the opportunity to submit their proposals until 28 January 2011. The companies whose components best meet the objectives of the Primary Care Safe will afterwards be invited to further explain their proposal. The outcomes of the market consultation will provide important input for the possible announcement of a tender for the purchase of components for the realisation of the Primary Care Safe.
