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.
