Paper Abstract

To provide quality health care, clinicians need to be well informed. For health care to be cost effective and efficient, redundant services must be eliminated. Urban centers and rural areas need regional health information networks to ensure that primary health care is delivered with good continuity and coordination among providers. This paper describes the development of a city-wide computer-based pediatric health care network to improve decision-making and follow-through, and to provide aggregate data for public health purposes. The design criteria and process for this regional system are presented, addressing issues of network architecture, establishment of a uniform data base, and confidentiality.
