This article was written on 01 Aprand is filled under Volume 6 No 4. Current post is tagged Impact of Hospital Information Systems on patient care: To explore the perceptions of nurses about the use of a Hospital Information System HIS in the provision of patient care in terms of information and system quality.
Although HIS are becoming a vital part of nursing care, it is unclear what system characteristics contribute to nursing acceptance.
A cross-sectional survey research design was applied to collect data from nurses in the sample. System characteristics identified by the nurses as beneficial included timeliness, reliability, data completeness and accuracy of information.
Introduction The rapid introduction of Information Systems IS in all aspects of society has left little time to consider the impacts or develop policies to take maximum advantage of these systems. Most organizations, including hospitals either use or are planning to implement IS in some capacity.
Many hospitals around the world are in the process of moving away from paper-based health information and implementing electronic health information to support patient care.
This shift appears to be timely. The sheer volume and variety of health information has caused problems in the delivery of patient care when using traditional information systems.
For example, paper-based medical records are easily misplaced and can cause serious problems, such as the need for repeated diagnostic tests, delays in the planning of care, legal complications, and delayed patient discharges.
Hence, hospitals have started to use Hospital Information System HIS to facilitate and improve the process of patient care via the generation of electronic health records Ting-Ting, HIS were first introduced in the s to store more generic information such as data from laboratory examinations Shusaku, The main goal of current HIS is to manage information from all healthcare-related activities, including planning, monitoring, coordination, and decision making.
HIS implementation seems essential to meet increasing healthcare demands and the associated diagnostic, treatment and administrative system burdens; to support better patient care planning, and clinical or administrative decision making Edward, Nurses are the key providers of patient care, including assessment, diagnosis and intervention T.
Nurses must quickly incorporate information about various patients and immediately organize and interpret the information to plan quality care Bosman, Thus, it is imperative that HIS are designed to meet nursing care requirements to optimally coordinate patient care activities S.
The current administrative emphasis on the management of frequently used resources, cost control, the effectiveness of patient care, and improved quality and responsibility, reinforces the importance of optimal patient care.
An important precondition of optimal patient care is that patient information is completely and accurately recorded and accessible Ammenwerth, et al. Time required for patient care is related to complete, timely and adequate patient medical information. Many believe that the quality of health care is enhanced through information collected and accessed via HIS.
Information and HIS quality are linked with the support of effective, timely and appropriate care services, reduction of health risk; efficiently streamlining clinical and administrative tasks such as communicating with patients, their families and other healthcare professionals; monitoring patient awareness; and achieving strategic planning and community health management goals.
Health care environments are increasingly dependent on information and the volume of the data collected, stored and used has greatly increased, while computer dependence has also increased.
A small percentage of patients die during hospitalization or shortly thereafter, and it is widely believed that more or better nursing care could prevent some of these deaths.

Abstract. This document provides a review and analysis of guidelines and articles relating to the needs of older people with Web accessibility needs due to ageing, and compares these with the needs of people with disabilities as already addressed in WAI guidelines.
Health care information and related data have grown larger and faster in the past decade. This information is more operational and complex than previous information. However, larger and more complex data are not necessarily better data.

The most important issue in this field is the use of high-quality information to improve patient care. Thus, health information can be most effective when the data is high in quality. System quality in patient care measures important HIS characteristics such as timeliness and reliability.
However, timely information depends on the nature of the information, as information sensitivity is different in various segments. Reliability means that repeated processes of collecting, storing and presenting data show similar results.
Repeated tests on the same data must generate the same results. The population sample for the study included nurses from a bed hospital. This study used a systematic random sampling procedure to select the participants.
The majority of respondents were female Data was collected using a five-point Likert scale questionnaire. SPSS software was used to analyze the numerical data that resulted.
Results The survey response rate was 82 per cent out of nurses responded. Reliability is an important measurement attribute to support consistency of findings over time under the same conditions. There was an acceptable internal correlation among the questions and the admissibility of the questions was confirmed.
In this survey, descriptive statistics were applied to the independent attribute variables timeliness, reliability, completeness, relevancy and the dependent variable, patient care. The results are shown in Table 1.AIDS-related lymphoma is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the lymph system of patients who have acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Focus Points • Although an infrequent occurrence, psychiatric inpatients are at particular risk for suicide. • Risk factors associated with inpatient suicide are identified; however, current ability to predict who will commit suicide while in the hospital is poor.
