Liguria. From January, cigars affected by celiac disease will have dematerialized vouchers, rather than paper vouchers, to buy gluten-free food products. The Regional Council, at the suggestion of Vice President and Health Advisor Sonja Vial, has given the go-ahead to a deal with the Lombardy and Alice region to guarantee the use of Celiachi @ RL software also in Liguria where patients will be able to obtain purchases at authorized retail outlets. commitment other than exhausting the available monthly budget, set out in the treatment plan.

"This is another promise kept – advises Councilor Vial – regarding the commitment we made last year as part of the Gaia project on food allergies and intolerances. Experts tell us that for celiac or allergic citizens the only security of health care is to avoid eating foods that contain allergenic insults, even in minimal amounts. This innovation is another example of zero mile health care: the move to dematerialized vouchers aims to simplify patients' lives by facilitating access to gluten-free products, not only at their own local health authority, but also across regional boundaries, whereas the same software is used in Lombardy and other regions. In the same way – he concludes – patients coming from outside the Liguria region will be able to get products even with our retailers without any hassle. "

In Liguria, celiac disease affects about 1% of the population: an estimated 16,000 celiac patients are estimated to be present, while there are approximately 5,300 owners of paper vouchers issued by the regional gluten-free health system, of which 3700 are women. : about 2500 are in Asl3 (47%), just over a thousand in Asl2 (19%), 638 in Asl1 (12%) and 585 in Asl4 and the same in Asl5 (in both cases 11%). Most patients are between the ages of 41 and 65 (2,035), followed by the age group of 19 to 40 (1641).

With the dematerialization of the vouchers, those interested can go to the dealerships authorized to collect the products intended for them, guaranteeing recognition through the use of a health card. Furthermore, computerized voucher management guarantees a realistic update of the cost ceiling to which patients are entitled and provides a number of benefits, including uniform methods of care, more effective response to patient needs and efficiency in organizing and tracking the system-saving process and simplification of controls. Counsel Vial also emphasizes the "importance of prevention and early diagnosis, thanks to the diagnosis and treatment of health services available in Liguria, starting with the Polyclinic San Martino Hospital, Liguria's allergy reference point".

To ensure effective project sharing, Alice held a series of meetings with health and social executives, contacts with the Celiac Disease Company, and with representatives of the Patients' Association (AIC), as well as retail and pharmacy representatives.
