Design and implementation of a hospital information system for the Palestine Red Crescent Society in Lebanon
AbstractA case-mix hospital information system was designed and implemented in Palestine Red Crescent Society hospitals in order to support the network of Palestinian hospitals in Lebanon and to improve the health of refugees in the country. The system is based on routine collection of essential administrative and clinical data for each episode of hospitalization, relying on internationally accepted diagnostic codes. It is a computerized, user-friendly information system that is a stepping-stone towards better hospital management and evaluation of quality of care. It is also a useful model for the development of hospital information systems in Lebanon and in the Near East

[Patient archiving and communication systems: an example of the clinical application of information technology] El Gatit, A.M.; Shekhteryea, A.A.; El Gitait, Y.; Kutrani, H. (2006)The applications of patient archiving and communication systems have increased lately, particularly since the medical imaging companies began to distribute the software along with machines. These systems are very important in developing clinical work, particularly in critical care, for example following cardiac surgery. This paper describes these systems and explores how they work, as an example of the application of information technology in developing clinical work, and critical care in particular
