Abstract [en]

In the last decade modern information technology systems have been introduced to healthcare in order to improve it. The aim of this study is to present the impact of such information system’s adoption on patient safety and efficiency within healthcare.

Interviews, observations along with literature study were conducted in order to study the impact of the adoption on patient safety and efficiency at hospital’s wards where a new information system is implemented.

The conclusion of this study is that such information technology systems can improve patient safety. However it is believed that the information technology system can improve efficiency in some aspects such as the communication among medical care personnel while other aspects within efficiency can be achieved if some improvements are made. Moreover the ability to access Electronic Healthcare Records is considered to be important to improve the medical care, which can increase patient safety.
