In the early years with the usage of computers in the hospital, the hospital management was primarily involved in creating a good Medical Records system not only for themselves but also as per the Government mandate. The “MRD File” system proved to be an effective tool to gather the patient data in individual patient files that seemed easy for the hospitals to manage. However, the sheer volume of paper works posed a major challenge for the MRD team and maintenance has become a big issue as the years progress.
Health card system has proved to overcome the problem of registering the patient on every individual encounter to the hospital. It serves as an efficient tool over all the counters of the hospital to ease the work of the end users and hence to reduce the patient waiting time. Another advanced terminology that is spoken in recent times is the “Smart Card” system within hospitals. Patients desire to use such a system to enjoy the benefits of cashless transactions, and the system for sure aligns itself
towards “Digital India”.
Today’s healthcare is an important part of our society & for a healthcare provider to offer their services in an effective and efficient manner, is very challenging. In multi specialityhospitals, for that matter even a single specialty hospital/clinic lots of patients keep rolling every day and it’s really difficult to maintain records of all patients manually. Given the complex business scenario today, even a Hospital has to have a good system to ensure all the relevant KPIs are tracked with ease. To facilitate this activity and also to manage hospital administration digitally, a smart Hospital Information Management System (HIMS) assumes significance.
