Information Systems, Data Management, Ambulatory Care

Definition : Data management information systems designed to provide clinical and administrative information related to hospital services provided to patients on an ambulatory (i.e., outpatient) basis rather than upon admission to a healthcare facility. These systems include hardware and software capabilities to collect information from measuring devices (e.g., electronic sphygmomanometers), recorders (e.g., electrocardiographs), and other devices used during examination and/or treatment of patients. Ambulatory care data management information systems assist physicians in managing the prognosis and treatment of outpatients, including administrative tasks such as prescription drug recording and billing.
