Diploma in Hospital Information Management System (HIMS)

Course Description :

In the past years, very few people in India could agree with idea of managed care in the hospitals. But looking at the condition of most of the hospitals in our country and standard of healthcare that is being provided to the public / patients, it has become absolutely essential to put the responsibility of management of clinical / medical information in the hands of the qualified hospital managers / administrator / system analyst. An IT engineer without exposure to handle the medical information cannot handle healthcare IT infrastructure in the hospital settings where hospital information management system is available. In the government set ups they are more or less dependent upon clerical staff. The result is often gross mismanagement and dissatisfaction on the part of patients. The sincerity of the clinicians can hardly be doubted but hospital gets its goodwill with the overall administration and performance of every staff member.
