A study on challenges faced in implementation of Hospital Information System. Jharashree Pattajosi

When a new information system (IS) is implemented in an organization, it usually involves modifications to policies, procedures, processes, infrastructure, and work practices. These changes include people, technology, and procedures, and they affect people at all levels of the business, including top management, middle management, and other employees. Despite this, businesses are constantly looking for information technology (IT) in general, and information systems (IS) in particular, to help them better their services and products. Clinical decision support, physician order entry, computerized surveillance, and patient safety are examples of IS systems that enable healthcare organizations to enhance clinical processes, control costs, and respond to the need for excellent care. The management of administrative, financial, and clinical aspects of a hospital has been altered by Hospital Information Systems (HIS).
These systems are utilized for more than just managing data efficiently and promptly. They’re also utilized to make information more accessible, such as a patient’s medical history. This is extremely beneficial to the healthcare industry. Despite the importance of HIS in enabling higher-quality health care, there is always the possibility that a HIS initiative will fail. IS project failure is a worldwide issue. It can occur at any point during the software development life cycle (SDLC), and for a variety of reasons.
Despite its importance, the level of implementation in such systems is very low. The purpose of this study is to identify probable sources of hospital information system implementation issues in a private hospital.
