Data analysis traditionally belong to scientist's field of interest. Usually scientists gatherer and analyze their own data. Challenges of 21st century require more global point view in decision making process from each worker in local workplace. Local public health sector is strongly related with global world. So, right managerial decision-making in local workplaces depends on changes in global environment. The speed of changes is very high. Therefore, it is necessary to encourage workers of public health sector to make daily managerial decisions evaluating both global and local data. Information technologies (IT) supports decision making process. It is easier to analyze homogeneous data. Analysis of global data has shown that data formats were often incompatible. Limited IT competencies of public health workers make analysis of data from different sources difficult. This article describes a method for integration of global heterogeneous data in local databases.
