Quality of health care services is very sensitive theme, which is interesting not only for health care services providers, bud also for general public as a recipient of paid health care services, with purpose to protect the most important treasure of all of us – our health. This paper presents, the theoretical and empirical research knowledge, critical factors of success, critical processes and objectives for improvement in health care organizations services in five EU countries. The basis is the current theoretical and practical knowledge as to the improvement of the services of health care organizations gained from professional literature. The main body is comprised of questionnaire research from health care organizations and pertinent personal interviews with doctors and managers of selected organizations with primary and secondary care, and hospitals. After a qualitative and quantitative processing of the questionnaire research, and from the results of the pertinent interviews, it was discovered that the critical factors of success are, despite the varied levels of services offered, the same in the participant states: legislation, system of management and creation of resources. Determining the concrete critical processes and objectives for improvement must be consistently individual, up to the level of the individual health care organizations and basic healthcare organizations social groups – healthcare microsystems. Accumulation and exploitation of digital health care capital: data, information, and the knowledge of medicinal, managerial, and facilitating processes can be considered as a significant potential for improvement of the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of health care organizations.

Political symbolism; mythology; Slovak national identity; symbolic representation

Political Symbolism of Slovakia: Between the Cross and European Star. Focusing on political symbolism, the author analyses how the representation of Slovakia and its citizens is constructed in both national and international contexts. The images of country, nation, or state as well as various forms of their symbolic representation are created mainly by so-called „cultural elites“. The aim of this study is to identify the maintenance of and ruptures in the construction of self-images and stereotypes in the realms of political memory and mythology. The author identifies major trends, such as the effort to „people“ Slovak history with hero-martyrs and the constant prevalence of self-critical approaches to Slovak national identity building. In historical accounts, Slovaks have usually been characterised according to their plebeian origins and embedded „Christian-Catholic“ traditions and values. Successful reconstruction of political memory has been accomplished through organised collective remembering and forgetting. Within these processes, Slovaks attempt to redefine their national identity by manifesting the symbolic representation of their state in the form of official state symbols (sign, flag, or anthem); and by establishing state holidays and memorial days that manage, in a concentrated ritual way, to express the basic political values of the official regime. This study discusses the dominant topics of public discourse in the process of selecting and establishing holidays and official state symbols. The centre of these controversial interpretations lies in symbols and the parties involved in public discourse, which organise a ritualised defence of their positions through manifestations, meetings, petitions, open letters, and strikes.
