consequently. To Take advantage of the large amounts of unprocessed data. Introduction Today's health care organizations are both highly specialized And structured to rapidly adapt to changes in social and financial Environments. The first study addressed The information requirements of health care managers And the second study focused on organizational activities and Clinical practice. One of the greatest challenges that health care organizations face At present is the establishment of management information systems That are flexible and that have sufficient expressiveness to Handle highly complex environments. Qualitative data was collected from two case studies In process-oriented health care settings. Managers require information systems that supply data for sets Of different analysis methods and tools The aim of this study is to develop a conceptual model of a management Information system that suits process-oriented health Care organizations. A conceptual model of a management information system For process-oriented health care organizations was developed In two parts: one part that describes the organizational Interface of the model and the other part that describes the architecture Of the model.Abstract Objective: To develop a conceptual model of management information System for process-oriented health care organizations. the organizations Also need an integrated information system for rapid Data structuring and analysis and for the distribution of the resulting Information to manager and care provider . Health care Information Systems (HIS). To analyze health care systems. health care management. One known difficulty within information systems is finding a Connection between the resources use and actual cost One solution to problems with primary data collection For management information systems is using pervasive networked Devices and extracts from computerized patient records. Keywords Process-oriented health care organizations.
data was collected from documents and archives . 21 physicians. In this study. the Balanced Scorecard  Was introduced in 2000. the hospital adopted a broad quality program in 1996. the pediatric clinic supplied approximately 16. Based on Total Quality Management (TQM) and a Plan. performed 5. For quality Control. it has been suggested that it is important for The researcher to have contextual data available to understand the Setting for the case. The primary type of data in this mode of Analysis should be the qualitative. The functional Units consisted of clinics and wards. the data were structured to reports That was sent to participants in the case studies for Reflection and critique.000 scheduled surgical interventions. The reports supported a feedback loop For refining the findings in a process between researchers and Practitioners Results The study hospital employed a networked management structure In which responsibility was distributed from hospital management to functional unit and process unit management. In both case studies.DoCheck-Act cycle. and managed 6. Finally. the pediatric clinic. The clinic cooperated with maternity Wards and Child Health Centers (CHCs) throughout the county At the time of the study (2000). the primary data from two case studies Were used to develop a management information system model For process-oriented health care organizations. The process units . while the second study focused on organizational and work activities. and 13 secretaries. interviews. The hospital had 30 clinics and 3.000 Bed-days to inpatients. The primary study site was a functional Unit. For cost control. observations and focus groups. and the primary level of analysis Should be holistic. Data collection and analysis Data collection and analysis were based on a qualitative research Strategy.Methods The study was performed at a county hospital in southern Sweden. The management group consisted of six senior physicians.000 emergency room visits by children. 91 nurses. the pediatric clinic employed 12 Senior physicians. representing the clinic and The wards.200 employees. The first study Addressed the information requirements of health care managers. During the time of the study. 77 pediatric nurses (Specialized nurse¶s aides). Seven nurses and one secretary.
which Were defined in terms of the medical and nursing care for specific Patient groups. hospital management requested information about the use Of resources and the quality of health care from the hospital organization Process unit management Process unit management focused on the development and Maintenance of a level of high quality in the medical and nursing Care processes. The process unit had the responsibility for at . several clinics. As a Result. The objective was to increase Cost-efficiency ratios and patient empowerment.Were based on Patient Need-Group Processes (PNGPs). The county council formally required that Hospital management controlled and reported on service production With regard to quality and cost. hospitals and county councils were involved in one process. and when necessary. The units were inter-organizational and multiprofessional. The model management information system is interfaced to the Process-oriented health care organization at three levels Hospital management Hospital management focused on supplying emergency and Specialist medical care and rehabilitation services to the population population at a county level.
(2) patient Flows and (3) the use of human and material resources. Management information system architecture To control service delivery. the management units in the processOriented health care organizations need data from three areas: (1) The medical and nursing care of patients. including documentation and quality control Operations. such as the Balance Scorecard or Quality assurance methods. the requirements on data analysis and presentation Are considerably different. Hence. Clinic management Organized monitoring the resources invested in the clinic and the Ward managers managed the exchange of information at the Wards. tools and data formats required by the actual organizational Analysis procedures. . The application interface and The applications are those parts of the MIS that health care manager Interact with and are those parts that users think of as the MIS. but they always included at least one physician. over Time. The applications therefore must support health care managers¶ Use of information and must supply the right information From the databases to the appropriate health care managers. the cost control tools that were used by hospital management Were distributed as tools of analysis even to the functional Unit management. the amount of these resources the units could spend. Data that are documented in the records can be Used to monitor the clinical actions that have been performed. Also. Even Though the management units can share access to a common data Warehouse.Least one PNGP. Instead it is useful to analyze generalized Data. Data collection should preferably be located in places where data Are available in ordinary health care activities . Functional unit management Hospital management provided the functional units with a specification Of resources available and methods for planning. The CPR can also provide data about work activities that have Accrued at the health care organization. Such data from a single Patient is of little interest. one nurse and one secretary. Functional unit management comprised both Managers of the clinic and ward managers. The applications must be able to support the specific analysis Methods. The size of the units differed.
