#HITSMIND Tweetchat on 19th Oct 2014: #HIMS Solutions for Hospitals

There has been a great amount of buzz around HealthIT, i.e., EHRs, EMRs, mHealth, Telemedicine, Teleradiology etc. 

Implementing a HealthIT solution in a hospital provides some unique insights into what goes into the selection of a system for the hospital and what are the benefits that a hospital derives from installing and implementing such a solution.

So lets take a few steps back and consider the various aspects of a Healthcare Information Management System (HIMS) in a hospital. After all, for our #DigitalIndia initiative, the hospitals that treat the patients need to enable the capturing of patient records in an EHR system as a first step.

  1. Introductions
  2. T1: Why should a hospital in India go in for a HIMS System?
  3. T2: What are the benefits of installing a HIMS System? Experiences: Good and Bad.
  4. T3: Does a HIMS differ for a Clinic, General Hospital to a specialty hospital? How does a hospital select the right system for their need?
  5. T4: When choosing a HIMS System, What are the factors that should be considered by a single location hospital and multi-location hospital, while choosing a HIMS system?
  6. T5: What initiatives should be taken to enable the clinical data recording to help generate and maintain the electronic medical records for the patient? Billing Vs EMR?
  7. T6: What are the various ways to build a partnership with your HIMS Vendor?
  8. Closing Remarks and suggestions
  9. Call for moderators for upcoming chats. Please inbox us via @HCITExpert twitter account. Or you can email us at:

We are sure there will be more discussions around this topic in the future. Based on these discussions and feedback from various quarters, we propose to generate a report that brings out the list of Features and Functionality of an HIMS, for various types of hospitals.
