Abstract: Achieving adequate efficiency of the healthcare information system, which is a part of the information infrastructure in the state, is an important prerequisite to achieve the desired level of efficiency and effectiveness of activities undertaken within the life cycle of healthcare policies and their planning and evaluation phrases. An insufficient information base could create obstacles for optimal decision-making processes related to resources usage in the healthcare. This paper presents the legal issues related to managing of the healthcare information system, use of this data source to conduct health policies, as well as the issues of ensuring security of information in this area. Guarantees of transparency of data processing operations within information systems and building trust for those solutions will allow increasing the benefits of using ICT in the processes of creation and management of healthcare policies, where an essence of the patient’s rights related to information autonomy should remain intact.
