The evolution of knowledge and information has changed the practices of health services over the years. The use of Information
systems (IS), with the underlying Information Technology (IT), plays a vital role in managing medical information and
associated resources, always to provide a better quality of health care. IS/IT is increasingly developing globally, with new
features and tasks greatly expanded, leaving paper records and voluminous files behind. The ubiquitous information and
computing resources increasingly allow the sharing of all types of data between various entities. New IS/IT will have to be
thought to correspond to the new types of monitoring and analysis of biomedical data. This work intends to explore the IS/IT in
health and its evolution over the last few years.
