Institutions for specialist medical care (with the exception of
academic hospitals, are divided into the three target groups VIPP 1 =
Hospitals, VIPP 2 = other institutions for specialist medical care and
VIPP 3 = GGZ institutions). In the period 2017-2021, these institutions
may be eligible for a subsidy from VWS to give patients digital and
standardized access to their own medical data. Following these VIPP
programs, a follow-up subsidy program has been started to stimulate the
digital exchange of information with a patient's PGO and between
professionals aimed at specialist medical care and audiological centers
(VIPP 5) with an end date of June 30, 2023.
The subsidy will enable institutions to make standardized patient data accessible, so that:
- patients receive correct and complete information;
- patients can share the information (or have them share) with other healthcare providers;
- the way is open for further healthcare innovations in the field of ICT.
As a condition for granting the government subsidy, the Ministry
of VWS has determined that an IT auditor (RE) must determine whether the
modules have been successfully completed on the basis of manuals drawn
up by the Ministry of Volksgezondheid, Welzijn en Sport for the final
The VIPP assessments are performed by Registered EDP auditors
(REs) within the framework of the Assurance Engagement Framework and
therefore in accordance with Guideline 3000. The VIPP assessment results
in a report with the auditor's opinion on the extent to which the
hospital has met the requirements. This report serves as justification
information for the subsidy applied for in accordance with the Decree
establishing a policy framework for subsidies for the Acceleration
Program for Information Exchange Patient and Professional.
