Keywords:Hospital Information System, Psychiatry, Therapeutic centres, Pakistan, Hospital Management, Cloud Computing
Considering the growing awareness and acceptance towards mental health, the COVID-19 pandemic opened new windows to incorporate technology into psychiatry. With reduced hospital visits and social distancing being the new normal implementation of the Hospital Information System (HIS) for secure and easy data storage or transfer, the record of multiple hospital areas has become necessary. Mental health is still taboo in developing countries like Pakistan; therefore, developing a HIS system for psychiatry must be taken forward with high data security. This article proposes a HIS system built for psychiatric clinics or therapy centres on a cloud-based platform to make it cost-effective for low-medium income countries like Pakistan. A survey was conducted to determine the feasibility of this proposal in which 70 people participated through an online platform. Results were analysed using SPSS 26.0, which concluded that 81.4% of the respondents agreed on implementing HIS into psychiatric clinics, while 12.9% of respondents were unsure.
