Among the characteristics of the present time, we meet the ranking of information among the key resources of effective management of business systems. Up to date, integral and accurate information have gained precedence over conventional economic resources. This applies particularly in the case of large and complex business systems, including the national health care and health insurance systems. High quality and unified databases form the foundation for rational and quality procedures ranging from the operative level to the national strategy level.
The goal of this paper is to demonstrate, on the example of Slovene experience, the importance of keeping quality databases for the purposes of health care and health insurance system management. The paper reviews the achieved level and the plans of further development of unified databases in this sector in Slovenia. The key emphasis in the development of an integrated system has been laid upon establishing uniform primary databases and providing appropriate integration in the area of data interchange among the actors of the health care and health insurance systems and other national systems.
