Today, Hospitals are adopting Information Technology as a vital solution, in automation of hospital management processes.
HIS (Hospital Information System) being one of the solutions, plays an important role in digitalizing the healthcare industry.
Technology is rapidly becoming the game changer and is improving the way healthcare is delivered across the globe. The healthcare industry generally uses less IT than other industries, but surveys indicate that providers are increasing their investments.
Both the private and public sectors have engaged in numerous efforts to promote the use of IT within health care institutions.
HIS is an application software that is used by Healthcare Organizations to simplify their Clinical, Financial and Administration processes. It also facilitates seamless flow of data across various departments of hospitals and helps them do their jobs more effectively in a paperless manner. It enables Doctors, Management and other authorized users to share data and streamline processes across an organization. HIS can be hosted both on the hospital server or cloud empowering key stakeholders access information anywhere, anytime through any device like tabs and smartphones.
An HIS is typically divided into multiple suits / modules to automate each and every department of the hospital viz. Patient Management, Billing, Lab, Nursing, OT, Stores, Pharmacy, Radiology, Diet etc.
HIS benefits the hospitals in the following ways:
· Enhances patient care and safety
· Increases overall profitability and productivity
· Controls revenue pilferages & many more…
