“AN EVALUATION OF THE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM AND TECHNOLOGY IN HOSPITALS” (GESITI/HOSPITALS). MAP UPDATED: APRIL 02, 2013.
The Center for Information Technology Renato Archer (CTI), located at Campinas/SP/Br, is a unit of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MCT) and, is coordinating a research project involving several universities, from Brazil and abroad. The research project “Management of System and Information Technology in Hospitals” (GESITI/Hospitals) has the purpose of mapping out the management of Information Systems (IS) and Information Technology (IT) in hospitals, in order to identify their needs and demands, prospecting for unfolding, perform publication and, mainly, generate a Integrated Research Report (IRR) with a focus on, also, a Report Research Roadmap (RRR). This IRR/RRR is for open for free access, and should be used as decision making support by public and/or private managers.
Currently the research is being carried out by nineteen universities: sixteen Brazilian, one Mexican, one Argentina, one from Slovakia, one from Czech Republic, one from Bulgarian and one Portuguese. An important initial result of this research work, which makes use of the Interpretative (or Introspective) Methodology, has been the generation in Brazil of an unprecedented database regarding hospital management and, from which several important information is extracted. From each local information, obtained via Local Research Reports (LRR) where the research has been carried out (each local includes the average of results obtained in five (5) hospitals); it becomes possible to undertake local decision making. However, the main purpose of the project is the preparation, based on the integration of all LRR, of an IRR/RRR for national decision-making support.
For a better decision-making on issues of interest to managers regarding the better efficiency and effectiveness of hospital management, public and/or private, the IRR/RRR will also present an integrated comparative analyzes based on all LRR (from Brazil & Abroad).
Although it has not been directly mentioned, the final result, ultimate, from the research should be a significant improvement on the hospital management and on the decision-making process. These results must reflect on peoples more satisfied regarding a better health care.
This is a win-win project, since it is good for Brazil and good for all countries involved. The goal is to reach about one hundred (100) universities (local coordinators) involved.
