1. Better and Easier Access of Information
As the name suggests, Hospital Management Information Systems are meant to help your hospitalâs access to information. Over time, the system collects data about your patientsâ health and stores it individually. Every time a patient visits your hospital, the system takes this information and stores it in the patientâs cloud file. This is the same as creating a cloud file for your patientâs health history. This information can be accessed in years to come allowing you to study your patientâs health history at any time and treat them accordingly. This means that even when one doctor is not available, any other doctor handling the patientâs case has access to their health history. This access of information is easier as opposed to IPD files.
2. Efficiency and Accuracy
An Information System guarantees accuracy in terms of data and records. There are no cases of wrong file processing since all the files are processed by the system. This is as opposed to the manual filing which in some cases might lead the presentation of wrong files owing to human error. Occurrence of errors is therefore eliminated. According to Hanmak Technologies in Kenya, a HMIS solutions company, its hospital clients have reported high efficiency and accuracy since adopting this system. Humans experience fatigue, which this system will never experience. This means that its accuracy and efficiency in performance is always guaranteed, which in return will contribute to the smooth running of your hospital or clinic as well as quality services.
3. Data Security
One of the things that make a hospital trustworthy is the ability to keep patientsâ records private. No patient wants all their health history exposed to third parties; it should only remain confidential between a patient and their doctor. The old school manual filing maintains high risk of patient information exposure to third parties. However, with the Hospital Information System in place, patients are guaranteed of the highest level of privacy and confidentiality of their health history. The system stores patient information in cloud files which require logins to access this information. Thus, only authorized persons can access this information.
4. Cost effectiveness
Adopting an Information System translates to cutting down of management costs. The system does a lot of work automatically which could have otherwise required someone to do manually. This eliminates the need for labor to feed this information manually. Hanmak Technologies Kenya reports that once the system is fed a patientâs information the first time, the next time and every other time the patient visits the hospital, it picks and gathers that patientâs information and automatically sends it to the patientâs cloud file. Thus, your hospital is saved the costs of hiring labor to do this job manually.
The above benefits and many more are the reason why you need to adopt a Hospital Management Information System into your hospital.
