The necessary data sharing and the development of information systems strongly emphasizes the issue of semantic interoperability of health systems and management repositories. However, if, in the context of the interoperability of information systems, choice, maintenance and the use of semantic standards are necessary conditions, the behavior of players and practices of evaluation procedures are nevertheless essential component for proper functioning.
