Abstract

Currently, hospitals are required to improve their quality of health services to meet the higher standards. This improvement is supported by Ministry of Health which has launched electronic health (e-health) program. Under this program, hospitals are required to have Hospital Information System (HIS) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for healthcare. However, to date only a few hospitals have implemented an integrated HIS. The purpose of this research is to asses the Information Technology (IT) maturity of a teaching hospital in implementing HIS. This IT assessment observes from four layers namely business process, Information System (IS), Information Technology (IT) and IS/IT management and organization. The result of this research is that teaching hospitals should prepare a plan to restructure their network with adequate infrastructure, create IT blue print and policy, IT organization restructuring, IT staff competency development and build integrated HIS.
