A significant part of the operation of any hospital involves the acquisition, management, and timely retrieval of great volumes of information which usually involves patient medical records and medical history, staff information and schedules, rooms, operation theater and ward scheduling, etc. The management of all of this information must be done in an efficient and cost-wise fashion so that the organizational resources are efficiently utilized. Unfortunately, most of the hospitals are still adopting the traditional way of manually keeping and recording data which is very hectic and takes up a lot of time and space. This results in a bad health care service and inefficient patient personal information management. Having a good Hospital Management System (HMS) provides various advantages such as exchanging health information electronically which then results in a high quality and safer care for patients and creates highly tangible managerial enhancements to the hospital. Every industry is now automating their functions; hospitals are also now adopting HMS to ease up their works. Gitwe Hospital Management System (GHMS) was designed for the Gitwe hospital to replace its existing manual recordkeeping system. The new system controls the following information; patient information, room availability, staff and operating room schedules, patient invoices, etc. These services are provided in an efficient and cost-effective manner with the goal of reducing the time and resources currently required for such tasks. GHMS is an HMIS with great user interface designs, more performance enhancements, and a number of enriched modules. It works for a big deal to bring value to the words ‘care’ and ‘comfort’ in this hospital scenario. In addition, GHMS is endowed with an advanced feature of retrieving online WHO’s ICD codes to properly note diseases on health records, to track epidemiological trends and to assist in medical reimbursement decision.
