Introduction

4 Evaluation the current situation about healthcare services and drugs by analaysing the data of SSI and IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics. The number of patients applied to a healthcare services and invoice costs; the number of prescription taken from Pharmacy Prevision System and invoice costs; 2010 drug units and costs according to ATC (Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical) codes were analaysed. Objectives
