This document focuses on the preparation of a strategic plan for a Health Information Service at Curtin Hospital for the duration 2015-2020. The objective of the project aims towards the technical development wherein the use of paperwork will be replaced by digitalization.
Electronic Healthcare Record system will come into picture which will not only make work procedure easier but will also reduce the burden and difficulty while dealing and maintaining those records. This change will be applicable to the whole hospitals including all the stakeholders irrespective of their roles and responsibilities.
The visionary change procedure will thus provide a better solution to the patients as well as to the health care service providers who struggle through data management and other clinical activities. Hence, the objective is to develop effective patient handling system and manage the record maintenance system in a more convenient and suitable manner for future prospects (Nguyen, Bellucci, & Nguyen, 2014).
