Abstract

This article evaluates the effectiveness of health information systems in improving the performance of public hospitals. The main goal of this research is to investigate the effect of using health information systems on improving the quality of services, reducing costs and increasing the efficiency of hospitals. The research method includes the analysis of statistical data from 30 public hospitals in the last three years and the use of regression models to investigate the relationship between variables. The results show that the use of health information systems has significantly improved the performance of hospitals, so that the quality of health services has increased by 20% and operational costs have decreased by 15%. The conclusion indicates that investing in health information systems can be considered as an effective solution to improve the performance of public hospitals.
