The development of informatics systems, more commonly known as hospital information systems (HIS), is one of the most challenging tasks facing hospitals today. Automated systems affect the daily routines and activities of all hospital staff, including doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, and financial and administrative staff. No group of staff is unaffected. Information technology offers enormous potential at affordable prices. The staggering rate of development means that concepts like the electronic medical record can begin to become a reality today.
