Brief description of Hospital information systems.

Hospital Information Systems aim to unify and automate the different operations of the hospital, financial, administrative, and clinical, thus improving the operational efficiency and the quality of the provided services in the modern hospital.

Health information systems can be used by everyone in healthcare from patients to clinicians to public health officials. Data are collected and compiled it in a way that can be used to make healthcare decisions.

A laboratory information system is a software system that records, manages, and stores data for clinical laboratories. Laboratory Information Systems are critical to high quality healthcare service provision.

Data show that the need for these systems is growing to meet accompanying technological and workload demands.

Health care accounting is similar to other professional accounting roles as in essense they also analyze reports, maintain financial records and track cash flow analyses. The fundamental difference between health care accounting and other types of accounting involves the complex healthcare-associated layers of these functions.

These layers represent multiple parties associated with health care, such as patients, insurance companies, health care providers, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies. Payment tracking, for instance, typically involves tracking money from patients, providers, and insurance companies.

Clinicians, physicians, nurses and managers need quality tools in order to improve and cope with emerging medical technologies and methods to maintain quality healthcare services.

ERP systems are software packages that allow an organisation to view information about the entire organisation, as well as the power to influence its operations. ERP software programs aim to handle multiple corporate functions including finance, human resources, manufacturing, materials management, and sales.

Business intelligence systems combine data gathering, data storage, and knowledge management with data analysis to evaluate and transform complex data into meaningful, actionable information, which can be used to support more effective strategic, tactical, and operational insights and decision-making.

An electronic health record (EHR) is the systematized collection of patient health information held in a digital format. Records are shared through network-connected, enterprise-wide information systems or other information networks and exchanges.

EHRs may include a range of data, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status,laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal statistics like age and weight, and billing information.

Electronic prescribing is a technology framework that allows physicians and other medical practitioners to write and send prescriptions to a participating pharmacy electronically instead of using handwritten or faxed notes or calling in prescriptions.
