Health and Welfare Information Systems Centre / TEHIK
TEHIK – the competence centre for the e-services in the fields of health, social security and labour was created in 2017 in the governance of the Ministry of Social Affairs. TEHIK manages information systems and databases of 1.3 million people in Estonia and develops e-services that make administrative procedures with the state faster and more convenient.
E-services for health
E-services for labour
The new self-service of the Labour Inspectorate developed in 2020 by TEHIK is the latest state-of-the art solution of cloud technology and microservices – an example that all the country’s e-services are striving for.
E-services for social security
The pillars of e-services for social security are two information systems developed by TEHIK: the information system of the Social Insurance Board and the database of social services and benefits. Thanks to these solutions, over three billion euros a year are transferred to the bank accounts of Estonian people in the form of different support programmes, benefits and pensions.
The e-services of which Estonia will be known for in the future, are already working.
