Abstract

It has long been recognised that effective management requires timely access to relevant management information. As has been the case with many other organisations in recent years, Senior Nurses of the Gloucester Health Authority have been considering their management needs in relation to the appropriate, and increasingly available information technology. This paper discusses an approach to harnessing computer capabilities to the information systems of an organisation, a process inherent in the development of its Narrative Specification for a Nurse-Personnel, Pay-Budget and Manpower Planning Computer System.
