Paper Abstract

To establish generalized method of quantitative measurement of clinical effectiveness of HIS/RIS, a method of comparison between pre/post operation of a system and between different systems operated in different hospitals was proposed. A generalized method for calculation of effectiveness index by score functions was developed. The results of measurement and calculation were applied to look for the timing of version up of the systems and also will be applied to grasp the effectiveness of revised systems. We have measured clinical effectiveness quantitatively along the method of technology assessment of HIS/RIS in Osaka University since 1993. Objects of measurement in HIS were time study such as consulting time, machine operation time, machine operation time with conversation between a physician and his patient and so on. And objects of measurement in RIS were reporting time for image diagnosis, writing time for a report and number of characters written in a radiological report and so on. Actual numerical value of index was calculated according to the developed score function and variables measured in 1998 and 1999 for HIS, and also according to the score function and variables measured in 1993 before RIS operation and after RIS operation in 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998 and 1999. The measurement and calculation will be carried out in other hospitals at large and the indices will be compared between hospitals in terms of system characteristics.
