Can Data Cure You? The Clinical Impact of Health Information Systems
Recent research by members of the HISRC indicates that existing healthcare systems are still quite fragmented, with the result that it is very difficult to build a complete picture of the patient, nor is it possible to assess clinical progress over time. Additionally, management of hospital and community care systems is hampered by inability to make decisions based on aggregate data from those systems. While moving from paper to electronic information systems is necessary, more work needs to be done on developing reporting, business intelligence and decision support systems with improved user interfaces and visualisation capabilities to enhance patient, ward and community care management. Additionally healthcare practitioners need more support in their roles. The ultimate aim is enhanced clinical outcomes at lower cost, in both developed and developing countries.
