Between 2001 and 2003, a project conducted in Croatia aimed to establish and develop a health information system based on the latest technologies. Extraordinary results in the trial run give the authors the ground to recommend such an approach to all transitional post communist countries. The development of such systems is feasible in transitional countries because most of them are still having one main insurer.
