ABSTRACT industry spent $12 billion to $16 billion on information technology in 1996. Further growth is The research goal in our study of medical expected as the health care industry implements information systems tools is to improve the electronic medical records, upgrades hospital performance of patient decision making by information systems, sets up Intranets for sharing integrating medical professional information with information among related participants and uses computer augmented information available on the public networks. Most hospital and health care world wide web environment. Our research delivery professionals recognize the significant focuses on software development based on a impact of Internet on health care and medicine. software reuse reference model in developing The Internet can be used to distribute health- medical educational system in headache domain related information and provide remote from reusable object design to customize for diagnostics via telemedicine [2]. The emergence software products in the same area. Developing of smart card technology has been recognized in software from reusable object design models managing patients’ medical record using web appears likely to realize significant savings in technology. Inspite of this growth in information time and effort and makes it feasible to create an technology and in the health care industry, use of entire product line. In part, this goal may be IT in health care is presumed to be several years reached by cost-effective software development behind than other IT sectors such as financial with validated reusable PCESs object design institutions, airlines, and manufacturing. Today’s models, UML and with the help of a valid healthcare practitioners have realized that they are WBMIS derived from these models. in an era of modern cyber technology and that they should be running at the same pace as Key Words: Web-based systems, patient internet technology is growing. The information education, object-oriented development, software super highway has played a major role in many reuse, reference model, medical informatics forms in establishing connections, maintaining teaching and patient care. and organizing health information in a secure and efficient manner and helped health care providers INTRODUCTION and patients to make better decisions on health related issues. Currently, there are numerous clinical systems, decision support systems and medical database THE INTERNET PROMISE AND systems in healthcare delivery. These systems INFORMATION ACCESS help clinicians in research, administration and in patient care management. These systems provide Computer professionals are working on how web valuable patient data to manage and improve technology can bring changes that would affect patient care and patient satisfaction with health health care delivery systems and make then more care delivery system. Mannai [1] reported that efficient and effective. Healthcare providers and researchers need the data to support and validate computer professionals, specially in web research, healthcare providers need these development have introduced many applications automated systems and clinical data to support in healthcare systems with system integration, and enhance the quality of their services, and designing effective and efficient systems to help regulators need such data and its associated health care providers to improve consumer’s statistics for decision support. Information satisfaction. The various applications in health technology (IT) playing an increasingly important care developed in the 1990s include: patient role in its delivery to support and enhance billing system, patient medical record system, healthcare delivery system. The health care patient monitoring system, clinical decision
