BRATTIG CORREIA, Rion et al. The Use of Information Systems in Health Care Facilities: A Brazilian Case. Journal of Technology Management & Innovation [online]. 2013, vol.8, suppl.1, pp.72-72. ISSN 0718-2724.

Information technologies are increasingly incorporated into organizational functions. Also in the health sector, the incorporation of new medical technologies brings new challenges for IT managers to gather more and more information about patients. Thus, the aim of this paper is to assess the degree of maturity which healthcare institutions are and have with information technology, ie, how institutions use information systems, if computerized, and how they apply this system in the information management. Through closed questionnaire, 16 healthcare institutions in the north and northeast of the state of Santa Catarina were surveyed. Results show that there is a concern when using information strategically to decision making, even though the development does not follow a curvilinear shape ascending and Information Systems do not include features for analyzing complex data.
