Abstract

Nowadays healthcare organizations globally recognize the importance of applying information technologies to improve the quality of their services and reduce costs. The Hospital Information Systems (HISs) are the information systems applied in hospitals in order to provide necessary services for the hospitals. In addition to include all the facilities of the HIS, the implementation cost of the system should be reasonable and cost worthy. In this study we explain different parts of the HIS which has been implemented at the Mehr hospital in the Mashhad city of Iran. The HIS implementation cost is low and economical with the hospital income. Furthermore we investigate the effect of the HIS in different aspects of the hospital. The results indicate that applying HIS in Mehr hospital reduces the hospital cost by reducing the amount of paper consumption, omitting several stages of the hospital procedure doing by staff which concludes thrift. It also improves the quality of services in the hospital by increasing the speed of services.
