Case Study: Information Systems in a New Hospital in Adelaide, South
Australia for operational effectiveness and good customer care Implementing State of the art Information Systems in a New Hospital. Imagine a new hospital is about to be built, for example the new Royal Adelaide hospital. The directors of SA Health would like the new hospital to be world class with the most innovative information systems including robotics, patient record and case notes, pharmacy, general administration (including patient & staff rosters), payroll and finance systems.
Many of the Royal Adelaide Hospital’s Information systems are outdated. For example, the current Patient database, OASIS has been in use for a number of years, and does not create case notes electronically. Patient case notes are still stored in paper form. Linen is stored in various places and transported around the hospital by staff with trolleys. Cleaning is done manually also. Imagine that you have been contracted to investigate possible innovative information systems, including robotics to replace the outdated systems. Your task is to produce a professional report based on the scenarios as stated above.
