Information Systems, Data Management

Definition : Information systems designed to manage clinical and/or administrative data in a healthcare facility. These systems consist of hardware, including workstations (usually with digital computers) and peripheral devices (e.g., high-capability storage devices, printers) that are typically connected as a local area network (LAN), as well as software, including operating systems, a database management system, and application programs. Data management information systems can collect, store, analyze, retrieve, display, and/or print information related to the whole facility (i.e., hospitalwide) or to one or more clinical specialties or procedures. Dedicated systems intended for clinical applications (e.g., cardiology, oncology) and/or administrative procedures (e.g., finances, reimbursement, materials management) are available, including bar-coding systems. Data management information systems that exchange information with medical imaging equipment (such as digital radiology imagers) usually follow DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine), a standard in the field of medical informatics that ensures interoperability.
