  • Description: In this article we try to reflect on the national information policy and information technology in health, their practices and the technologies involved. To this end drew up a historical account of the construction of informational practice in health, development of information systems in health nationwide, resulting from inadequate selection of technological artifacts to support, whose reflection is seen in the description of the current policy information if you want. It was found that the informational practice, despite the change of model of care, is still centered on the curative model focused on the disease. This is a result of intentionality that still perpetuates the practice of health care. Still there was the need to promote the strategic management of health information, which can be enhanced with the use of information systems. However, these systems, especially on the national level, are still inefficient and suffer from problems such as lack of interoperability, the inconsistency and duplication of data and weaknesses in various treatment processes and information management, making it difficult for managers, the decision processes in health. Finally, the national information policy and information technology in health presents itself crystallized, requiring several improvements, and the main one is its applicability in the context of health institutions.
