Report on the IT support systems for hospital management


Report no. 2/2007

This report deals with IT systems intended to support hospitals' performance of core tasks within patient care and hospital management. Further, the report deals with the strategies and plans for hospital IT support systems laid down by the regions.

Rigsrevisionen's examination answers two questions: First, do the hospitals have IT systems which support their core tasks within patient care and hospital management. Secondly, have the regions worked out concrete development plans for IT systems support of hospitals.

Thus the examination provides an overview of the IT systems currently at the disposal of the hospitals and supporting performance of core tasks. The examination also points to potential improvement areas. Rigsrevisionen also assesses the regions' concrete plans within IT and in that connection, Rigsrevisionen emphasises the importance of ensuring the best possible coordination of IT systems development initiatives across the regions.
