Project Name: Hospital Health Information Management Efficiency Enhancement Project in Honduras
Project Description: Honduras has developed and implemented an Integrated Health Information System (SIIS) in public hospitals for patient data collection. However, the quality and reliability of data is low since it is collected manually. In addition, the degree of data digitization in public hospitals is not high, and each hospital manages its own system independently, preventing exchange of the collected data and causing ineffective administrative procedures. Therefore, the TaiwanICDF and Taipei Municipal Wanfang Hospital jointly implemented this project. This project aims to develop a health information system and introduce it to two selected hospitals, as well as enhance health personnel capacities and strengthen hospital management efficiency. The main project contents are as follows: 1. Strengthen e-health system functions in selected hospitals; and 2. Strengthen hospital management.
