HELINA subscribes in full with the IMIA vision which is that there will be a world-wide systems approach for healthcare. 

Clinicians, researchers, patients and people in general will be supported by informatics tools, processes and behaviours that make it easy to do the right thing, in the right way, at the right time to improve healthcare for all. This systems approach will incorporate and integrate research, clinical care and public health.

To achieve this vision it will require everyone being supported by informatics-based information and communication systems and technologies.
