Building а National Clinical Data Warehouse

Ustun Yildiz, Ayse Keles


Turkey has created an e-health vision along with the Health Transformation Program. In this framework, standard coding systems such as standard definitions of the institutions, databank of healthcare providers, standard disease, drug and medical supplies classifications have been developed and a national clinical data warehouse (Health-NET) was established. Health-NET is an integrated, safe, fast and expandable health information system which aims to improve efficiency and quality of health services by collecting all kinds of data produced in the health institutions in line with the standards and generating information adequate for all stakeholders of the collected data.
