Hospitals are rarely a single department entity. They usually span across multiple specialties focusing on different areas of treatment, such as pediatrics, neurosciences, gynecology, etc.

There are also various departments taking care of the day to day running of the hospital, such as maintenance, accounting, billing, operation theatre,and management. Each of these departments consists of many people carrying out various tasks, which can range in complexities from brain surgeries, to fixing the overhead lamps. And a single organization may have hospitals across multiple locations, making it difficult to manage them all. A hospital management system helps you to manage the enormous complexities of efficiently managing the hospital in a sustainable manner.


Even though hospitals span across a number of different areas, in the beginning, it usually involves only a couple of departments and just the basic number of people required to manage them all. In such a case, a simple management system, with the capacity to deal with relatively less data would work. But as a hospital starts growing, incorporating more specialties and treatment facilities, this system may not be able to deal with the huge flow of data.


A hospital management system that could easily be scaled up could make this whole process much faster and easier.


As the number of departments and the employees grow, the management system would also grow to accommodate the conditions created by the growth, thus aiding the growth of the hospital, instead of being a hindrance.


Scale up - Role of a Cloud Based System


A cloud based system has a lot of advantages compared to an offline system, when it comes to scaling up. They could easily be updated to add more departments and employees, without having to reinstall the updated version in all the systems in a hospital. Instead of making changes in all systems in a hospital network the changes would have to be made only by the software providers. And since the software and its interface remains the same, there is no need to allocate extra resources to train the users.


A cloud based system would also be much more efficient in case of hospitals in multiple locations. As new locations come up, the software could simply be updated to include them, and here also, the existing management network could seamlessly be integrated without any additional training. The data generated from all the hospitals run by the same organisation could be integrated and analysed, to improve the overall performance. This would allow for better purchase decisions, as requirements for the entire chain of hospitals could be understood and remedied in bulk, thus helping make much better business transactions and therefore, improved efficiency for the entire network.


Resource Management and Reduction of Wastage


A good hospital management system would also help to prevent any unwanted wastage of resources. An efficient management of the inventory, of the various equipment's, disposables, would cut short the resources otherwise wasted. In the process of scaling up, there is usually an increased wastage of resources, due to purchase of excess materials to prevent shortage. With an efficient system, such wastage's could easily be detected and avoided. This could provide for a smooth scale up from a small hospital to a large network of hospitals, without excessive spending.


Scaling up - Understanding the Data Generated


A common problem associated with the scaling up of any system is the overwhelming amount of data generated from the various sub systems. For a hospital with its already large amount of data generated a scale up could be a headache without an adequate system to manage the data. Every bit of data has to be analysed and compiled into a manner which is easy to understand, so as to make correct decisions at every corner.


An efficient hospital management system would make this entire process a cake walk by managing the data generated in real time in a smooth and easily understood manner. In a good hospital management system all the data from the various departments, regarding all the matters from procurement of materials, human resources, energy requirements to billing, accounting, and inventory management is compiled and represented in a meaningful manner, and this leads to quicker and easier decision making process, and therefore an easier, smoother and efficient scale up.


Management of the Extra Human Resource required for Scale Up


Efficient running of a hospital requires that all the stakeholders play their roles, and for enabling this, they should be able to manage their work, in an easy and intuitive way. A good hospital management system allows the smooth delegation of work, and allows easy access to the information required for the task. For example, it should allow a doctor to enter the information regarding a patient and their treatment regime, and  it should also allow the pharmacist to easily track the inventory. With an efficient system, it would also be able to evaluate the work done by them. Such an easy management of the entire workforce, without causing any hindrance to them, but help them for this, would enable the hospital to grow up.


In short, a good hospital management system would make it easier to scale up the hospital network by easily managing the resources, avoiding wastage, making an efficient workforce, and a better management of data. Such a system could provide a hassle free care for the patient, and make everyone’s work much easier.
