Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the legal framework of the process of establishing the National Health Information System as a crucial step in the introduction of e-healthcare. Following a national survey and taking into account common European policies, the trends and guidelines for creating system, its typical characteristics are pointed out. Based on the analysis, specific recommendations are made for correcting the legal texts in order to adequately and effectively implement them in the practice of applying the integrated system. The study found the following results, namely - the need to refine the texts of the Health Act, of the guideline for access to personal electronic health records, to specify hypotheses for providing information about insurance companies, to refine the term 'citizens' as persons, entitled to access and to consider replacing them with "insured persons" or "persons using medical services". On the other hand, it is accepted that the introduction and proper functioning of the system should meet a high level of data protection criteria, since it is indisputable that the practice of introducing electronic medical records directly affects all the specific guarantees provided to the patient in connection with the protection of privacy and access to personal data.
