Abstract

An overview of operational nursing-oriented applications, integrated in the BAZIS Hospital Information System, is presented.

A project has been initiated to provide support for the daily operations in the nursing units. The objectives and the proceedings of this project are described. Pilot systems are developed in order to explore the feasibility of computerization in the field of nursing administration, communication and patient care. It has been found that information on repititious and inter-related nursing activities can be stored in protocols. An online demonstration model has been introduced to promote computer literacy. Experiences with the model as well as the results of a protocol-based pilot system, are reported.
