  • Description: Over the course of the past thirty years, Brazil has developed health information systems (HIS), but today these HIS are fragmented and ongoing endeavors to integrate them have failed. Therefore, this research-in-progress links two theoretical streams – HIS in Developing Countries and Information and Informatics in Health – in order to characterize health information and communication technologies (ICT) outcomes in Brazil. Considering health ICT as a public policy, the work proposes dimensions namely democratization, effectiveness, sustainability, and synergy, in which the HIS projects can be analyzed, via the actors involved with them.
