Abstract: To discuss current challenges and future perspectives in order to initiate a debate on the introduction of implementation of information system (e-health) for health care system. The ultimate goal of the article is to provide a ground work on which future standardized training and credentialing curriculum could be based on. Health care issues have been the subject of intense scientific discussions around the world for the past two decades. Most attention is drawn to the efforts of interested countries to find the most effective way of control complex health care systems. Expenditures on health care continue to increase substantially throughout most of the developed world. There is evidence that e-health is important and that in successful management, the effects are correlated with management practices and promoted values. Clinical quality depends on e-health system, therefore implementation of new information system are necessary at all levels. The development of e-health competencies must be an integral part of the training and education of doctors. In this study a new e-health system was developed based on healthcare expenditure and economic development. There is currently a great necessity of a standardized e-health systems to be developed and applied with training and certification of current and future leaders.
