The 2013 National Policy on Information and Information Technology in Health builds on the 2004 National Policy Information and Health Informatics policy. Specifically, the 2013 policy aims for the improvement of integration and coordination with the systems and databases relevant to health both within and external to government. In order to achieve the efficiency gains and quality allowed by technology, the need to establish a standard for eHealth to allow the construction of the Electronic Health Records for citizens is recognised. It is expected that the National System Health Information (SNIS) will guide the joint efforts and investments in information and informatics in health and implement the national strategy for eHealth.
