Determining the hospital information system (HIS) success rate: Development of a new instrument and case study

Hospital information systems (HIS) represent an important information and function management system for hospitals, providing assistance with diagnosis, management, and education functions for improved service and practice. But how effective are they at what they're designed to do? This work by Ebnehoseini et al. offers a mechanism for gauging HIS effectiveness through statistics and the information systems success model (ISSM). The authors applied their methodology to the Ibn-e Sina and Dr. Hejazi Psychiatry Hospital in Mashhad, Iran and determined a 65% success rate for the hospital's HIS. They conclude that their methodology "can be adopted for HIS evaluation in future studies" by others and that their results provide a clearer picture into "the viewpoints of HIS users in a developing country."

Laboratory Information Systems Project Management: A Guidebook for International Implementations

While not a laboratory informatics course in itself, this APHL guidebook certainly contains a full class-worth of material. Developed over several years with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this guide collects comprehensive information from informaticians and laboratorians in multiple countries in regards to the implementation and project management of laboratory information systems (LIS) in the public health setting.

Introduction to Laboratory Informatics

This is a collection of free online introductory laboratory informatics courses developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL). The first two courses follow the journey of a specimen through the laboratory and explores the generation and transmission of data and results within and outside of the laboratory. A third course on laboratory informatics systems is in development. Participants can earn Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education® (P.A.C.E.®) credits upon completion.
