What is a Hospital Information System (HIS)?

What is a Hospital Information System (HIS)?

A Hospital Information System (HIS) simplifies care coordination by improving access to patient history and health information. A HIS aims to provide a centralized database where patient health data can be securely stored, accessed, and shared as necessary to improve the quality and delivery of patient care.   

Currently, there is no standardized HIS solution. Rather, a number of private software vendors offer the technical structure and backing for health information systems. Clinics and hospitals can purchase HIS solutions for a fee or develop their own. Increasingly, health information systems are being implemented as cloud-based solutions. 

Benefits of a Hospital Information System

The push to create a digital and centralized database of patient health information is not new, but advances in cloud technology and electronic storage are helping drive the adoption of updated HIS solutions. With these advanced solutions, patients and providers stand to benefit in the following key ways:

    In addition to the above, Hospital Information System solutions also help streamline processes, eliminate touch work, and improve outcomes, all of which help reduce costs and build a reputation for providers.
