Hospital Information System (HIS)
Care Manager is simplified but comprehensive software for managing a hospital-centered,
integrated health network. It was designed for use in developing countries with less
sophisticated health resources, typically using paper-based records. The software
facilitates migration to world-class service delivery, without imposing voluminous data
entry on users or pre-supposing the presence of bar code readers, scanners, and other
technologies used in advanced western facilities.
The software manages the patient workflow from registration/intake through service
planning, treatment delivery and payment. It captures key data along the way which has
value for on-going care, including medical history and clinical test results. It also
facilitates enabling operations like central stores replenishment, lab order tracking, and
Although the software comes as a fully capable and usable product, it was designed to
serve as a template for further customization to local needs. For example, it is
straightforward to add additional data fields and on-screen reports to the system,
including entirely new areas of data collection - for example public health outreach. Users
are free to write any reports desired against the integrated relational database schema.
Care manager is browser-based software, meaning it requires no special software on the
user's personal computer. It can be run on any PC, tablet, or smartphone with a recent web
browser. A mobile version of the software is in development, optimized to deliver specific
functionalities for outreach workers and facility staff with an Android or Apple phone.
Nearly all the forms and codings that appear on screens can be configured by the system
administrator based on local protocol, language, and formats. Screens are provided for
this configuration work so the user need not understand the underlying database. That
being said, the software utilizes the mySQL relational database engine which does give the
customer unlimited query access for reporting and systems integration.
The customer may, of course, incur costs for the underlying web, application, and
database server software required to run the software, along with related hardware or
