These actions raise the credibility of information and at the same time enable this information to be available to the right people/institutions in a timely manner, useful for improving healthcare and managing scarce resources in the health sector. Within this paper, is discussed the implementation process of the Health Information System, namely AviCenna, and the procedures and challenges that are being faced while tending to implement in the health sector of Kosovo.
