Abstract

The CEO and senior management team of a large medical centre are exploring the option of purchasing and implementing a hospital-wide computer-based patient record system. A vendor has approached the nursing department and submitted a proposal to install their proprietary system. Two nursing practitioners have been asked to examine the proposal and they are recommending its adoption. The system would form a central structure with terminals at each nursing station. Third party wireless hand-held point-of-care devices could be added. The system could be linked to hospital support service departments including laboratories, pharmacy, central supply and accounting. The exact configuration of the system and its linkages would be individualized to the hospital''s needs after an initial go-ahead was received.
