Assessment of the health information system in Czech Republic / by Pavla Lexova and Jana Brozova
AbstractThis assessment of the National Health Information System (NHIS) in the Czech Republic was conducted as part of a project of the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Its goal is to enable a better use of information in decision-making, while holding into account the other factors influencing decisions. The methodology was developed in Romania in June 2003, and then tested in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary and Poland. This report is the result of the Czech experience. Semi-structured interviews of key-informants at the highest possible level, both decision-makers and professionals working in the field of health information, were performed by a Czech team, with the support of WHO. The project aims at identifying gaps and problems in health information system and serving as a basis for reviewing and strengthening NHIS; as a result, this system could be a better instrument for good governance, responsive to the needs of modern Public Health Care system
