Abstract: Despite repeated attempts to reform the Romanian health system, as an important part of the national security system, after 30 years of reforms, except for large university centers, the Romanian health system does not have enough family doctors or specialists, not enough local medical services and units, no available information, early warning and prevention programs at the level of the authorities in the field. As a reliable solution to the real situation of the health system in Romania, this paper comes up with a technical and medical solution in the event of a pandemics, case study for COVID 19 pandemic, which can substantially contribute to national security system. Building an integrated open source portal with access to geoformation and telemedicine technologies for public health management is intended to act as an early warning system by communicating and exchanging data accurately, efficiently, securely and consistently with various computer systems, software applications and networks, ensuring the operational work processes of the institutions involved (Ministry of Health, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of National Defense, Public Health Directorates, Hospitals, Epidemiologists, family physicians, specialists physicians, pharmacies and last but not least patients), while maintaining data confidentiality.
Keywords: security, open source, early warning, public health, telemedicine.
