Accprding to Ekathimerini, President of the Onassis Foundation, Antonis Papadimitriou, said the digitalisation will involve installation of sophisticated “imaging systems” which will help doctors facilitate a diagnosis.

The president also noted software by SAP-CERNER, which is a hospital management system, would be installed.

“It will meet the needs of the country and beyond in heart, lung, liver, pancreas and kidney transplants, to the extent, of course, that these are not covered by existing programs,” President Papadimitriou said.
