Abstract

Due to changing legal, political and economical framework conditions the European health market and especially German hospitals find themselves in transformation process, which in accordance with acknowledged studies 80% of the 2.200 hospitals this day will not survive beyond the year 2020 [1]. According to this it is necessary for hospitals to strengthen their competitiveness. Especially the lack of qualified personnel, absent transparency of the hospital processes as well as insufficient cost object and process accounting have emerged as important factors to enhance competitiveness. With the implementation of innovative process organisation, the clinical pathway and its support by a process orientated hospital information system in focus solution concepts are presented, in which ICT as success factor is given a central role. Process orientated hospital information systems support the clinical pathway and enable an efficient and effective resource management, create transparency and offer a comprehensive data base for accounting and controlling.
