Electronic Exchange of Social Security Information (EESSI) aims at improving the cross-border communication between the social security institutions of EU Member States and European Economic Area (EEA) countries participating to the CEF programme.

The Action aimed at the adjustment, optimisation and software upgrade of the central national IT application AP CMU (operated by the Health Insurance Bureau) used in the area of sickness benefits in order to:

  • enable communication within the EESSI ecosystem;
  • ensure compliance with the business processes and electronic documents at the EU level.

Within the Action 112 trainers were trained to use the EESSI system, who further trained the staff in their local workplaces. More than 1,200 clerks in Czech Republic are now benefiting from the EESSI system. They will exchange social security information mainly with the Slovak Republic, Germany, Austria and Poland.

The Action contributes to an efficient transition to electronic exchange of data in order to reduce the period of co-existence of digital exchange with the current paper procedures and to increase overall efficiency in social security coordination.
