High quality, reliable and comparable data from health registries are necessary in order to monitor and analyse the health status of the population and current trends. They are also important for scientific studies and political decisions. Purposeful national health policies and preventive measures to reduce health inequalities can only be formed on the basis of statistically reliable data.
A registry is comprised of legal, organizational, technical and program measures intended for registering an object of the registry and for managing and using the registry's data, information and documents and (or) their copies submitted to the registry.
