PAGNI is the largest hospital facility in Crete and one of the largest public hospitals in the country, with around 800 beds and more than 2200 employees. Currently, PAGNI is using a Hospital Information System (HIS), named “PANAKIA”. This is an eHealth IT infrastructure that creates links between the hospital medical care, the patient flows and the records.
