The challenges facing healthcare systems have been well known for years, but with the passage of time they are becoming more complex. Factors such as an aging population, an increasing number of chronic diseases, a lack of health personnel of all profiles, the unavailability of healthcare in certain areas, the increasing expectations of patients, i.e., of citizens in general, are making the provision of quality and efficient healthcare an increasingly daunting challenge for the health authorities. On the other hand, the optimal use of new available drugs, the latest procedures or modern medical devices, and the application of considerable up-to-date expert knowledge represent challenges for healthcare professionals that they must face in the limited time they have at their disposal for each patient.  There are many organizational and technical measures at their disposal to overcome these challenges, but the introduction and quality use of information systems is one of the measures that can lead to a quantum leap in the quality of healthcare provision, affecting almost all aspects of the process.
