Family medicine practices form the basis of the Croatian health system. They solve the largest number of health problems and collect the most health data with the lowest operational cost. However, the software support required for the running of these offices at the time being is still certified only based on the principal communication criteria, while all other essential functionalities are generally uneven and left to the will of the producers. It is necessary to assess the quality of this…
