Hospital information system
A hospital information system (HIS), variously also called clinical information system (CIS) is a
comprehensive, integrated information system designed to manage the administrative, financial
and clinical aspects of a hospital. This encompasses paper-based information processing as well
as data processing machines.
As an area of medical informatics the aim of an HIS is to achieve the best possible support of
patient care and administration by electronic data processing.
It can be composed of one or few software components with specialty specific extensions as well
as of a large variety of sub-systems in medical specialties (e.g. Laboratory Information System,
Radiology Information System).
CISs are sometimes separated from HISs in that the former concentrate on patient- and clinical
state- related data (electronic patient record) whereas the latter keeps track of administrative
issues. The distinction is not always clear and there is contradictory evidence against a consistent
use of both terms.
CRH has customized a HMIS software in few departments viz. Finanace module , Registration,
Central Supply and Stores and Medical Records Departments.
Positioning is the act of designing the hospitals offer, so that it occupies a distinct and valued
place in the target customer’s mind. The Hospital should be positioned in such a way that the
following parameters are met with.
The Hospital is important as it serves to cure an ailing person through effective treatment.
