The choice of type of system must be based on both short and long term goals of the hospital. The integration of such an information system and a productivity management program should constitute a major focus of any selected design. In this day and age of health care cost containment, the ability to make available the necessary and accurate information to the right place at the right time is of eminent interest to both patients and hospitals. The process of managing information and technology will not require that the present system should be revamped; however, a gradual adaptive change involving process integration will be necessary for the assessment of efficiency.
