with health institutions and namely with pharmacies was also strengthened. The intention of this corporation was to insure
hardware equipment to support the software produced by HII.Since their system was designed in such a way that it served not

equipment became our collaborators in improving the system. The HII received more than 17% of all health funds, with 8.5%
coming from the state budget, 4.3% from employers and 4.4% from individual contributions. While the state remains the major
