Abstract

Beginning in the late 1970s, developers of hospital information systems (HIS) began to focus on modular systems. Today, HIS are generally built in a modular fashion (Peterson and Gerdin Jelger 1988). The great benefit of modularity is that a system can be adapted in a number of ways, based on the modules implemented. Consistent with its role and scope, a hospital implementing an HIS may select modules from within an HIS, such as
  • Admission/discharge/transfer (A/D/T)

  • Order entry/results reporting

  • Pharmacy

  • Finance

  • Inventory control

  • Medical records index
