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.
