What is health care information system?
health information system enables health care organizations to collect,
store, manage, analyze, and optimize patient treatment histories and
other key data. These systems also enable health care providers to
easily get information about macro environments such as community
health trends
Doctors and nurses use health
information systems to make data-driven
decisions regarding various facets of
patient care. For example, quick access
to patient medical histories can bring
previous treatments to light
Health information systems are also invaluable to administrators, who
can analyze statistics about different departments or procedures to
better allocate the organization’s resources. n any health care
organization, it’s typical to see several different systems working
together within a broader IT environment. It’s helpful to understand
some of these different health information systems.
Potential benefits of hospital information
systems include:
• Efficient and accurate administration of finance, diet of patient,
engineering, and distribution of medical aid. It helps to view a broad
picture of hospital growth
• Improved monitoring of drug usage, and study of effectiveness. This
leads to the reduction of adverse drug interactions while promoting
more appropriate pharmaceutical utilization.
• Enhances information integrity, reduces transcription errors, and
reduces duplication of information entries.
• Hospital software is easy to use and eliminates error caused by
handwriting. New technology computer systems give perfect
performance to pull up information from server or cloud servers.
Types of Healthcare Information Systems
• Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
• Electronic Health Record (EHR)
• Practice Management Software
• Master Patient Index (MPI)
• Patient Portals
• Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)
• Clinical Decision Support (CDS)
• Laboratory Information System (LIS)

  • 7. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) EMR systems replace paper patient records. The medical information on each patient is collected and stored electronically. These records include patient health information, test results, doctor and specialist visits, and healthcare treatments.
  • 8. Electronic Health Record (EHR) EHR systems replace paper patient records. The medical information on each patient is collected and stored electronically. These records include patient health information, test results, doctor and specialist visits, and healthcare treatments. Many healthcare facilities use cloud-based storage for sensitive data for increased security. However, this may not be an option for Critical Access Hospitals that struggle with basic EHR systems.
  • 9. Practice Management Software Information systems assist healthcare facilities and personnel with the management of daily operations of the facility. This includes the scheduling of patients and the billing of medical services. Regardless of their size, from single practice doctors to huge multi-center hospitals, all healthcare providers utilize practice management systems. The goal is to automate administrative tasks to streamline the facility’s workflow and increase patien t-staff interactions.
  • 10. Master Patient Index (MPI) The software of this healthcare information system connects patient records to more than one database. The MPI contains records for any patient registered at a healthcare organization. MPI creates an index on all the records for that patient. MPIs reduce duplicate patient records and avoid inaccurate patient information that could result in patient claim denials.
  • 11. Patient Portals This information system enables patients to peruse their health data. They can access appointment information, medications they may receive, and their lab results via the internet. Some patient portals also facilitate active communication with healthcare professionals, including physicians and pharmacists, regarding their prescription refill requests and scheduling of appointments.
  • 12. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) RPM provides medical sensors that can transmit patient data to healthcare professionals. RPM can monitor blood glucose levels and blood pressure. It benefits patients with chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, or cardiac disease. Data collected and transmitted via RPM can be used by a healthcare professional or a healthcare team to detect medical events such as strokes or heart attacks that require immediate and aggressive medical intervention. Data collected may be used as part of a research project or a health study. RPM is a life-saving system for patients in remote areas who cannot easily access face-to-face, in-person health care.
  • 13. Clinical Decision Support (CDS) CDS analyzes data from clinical and administrative systems. The aim is to assist healthcare providers in making informed clinical decisions. Data available can provide information to medical professionals preparing diagnoses or predicting medical conditions like drug interactions and reactions. CDS tools filter information to assist healthcare professionals in caring for individual clients.
  • 14. Laboratory Information System (LIS) LIS software allows doctors and lab technicians to coordinate inpatient and outpatient tests for microbiology, hematology, chemistry, and immunology to obtain clinical data. A standard information system for a lab manages patient demographics, check-in information, specimen entry and processing, and results.
  • 15. Benefits of Using a Health Information System • Improved Quality of Care • Reduced Costs • Reduced Reliance on Physical Records • Improved Coordination • Reduced Need for Patient Testing • Improved Performance Analysis • Reduced Prescription Issues • Reduced Prescription Fraud and Doctor Shopping
