Abstract

Since 1972 BAZIS, the Central Development and Support Group HIS in the Netherlands, has been involved in developing and implementing an integrated HIS. The HIS is presently in use in more than 30% of the Dutch hospitals (covering over 20,000 beds) and this percentage is still growing. The BAZIS-HIS contains over 70 applications, of which at least 14 are of value for nurses at clinical wards, e.g. ADT, duty roster and student scheduling, patient classification, meals ordering, results reporting, on-line handbook information, CAI, etc. However, these applications do not yet form one complete and coherent whole providing the nurses with extensive support of the daily information management activities in the nursing unit.
