Abstract

The installation of a computerized hospital information system (HIS) does not just happen. It proceeds from its earliest conception, usually by a senior hospital administrator or board member, through an elaborate decision-making and selection process that finally culminates in an evaluation of the chosen system. This process is summarized in Figure 13.1. It is imperative that nursing be actively involved in providing input at every stage in the process from beginning to end (Manning and McConnell, 1997; Mills, 1995).
