SegHIS is a Hospital Information System (HIS) based on open source & proprietary technology. It is a comprehensive web-based, integrated HIS designed to manage the clinical, administrative and financial aspects of a hospital. It is a modular, flexible, and scalable software for hospitals and healthcare organizations. It is designed to integrate the different information systems existing in these organization into one single efficient system.
SegHIS solves the problems inherent in a network of multiple programs that are non-compatible with each other. It can integrate any type of systems, services, processes and data communications that exist in a hospital environment. Its design and architecture can even handle non-medical services or functions like security (physical and data), maintenance and other building automation and the like. It is modular and highly scalable. SegHIS uses a standard SQL database format for storing and retrieving data. The use of a single data format solves the problem of data redundancy. When configured accordingly, it can support multiple database configuration to enhance data security, availability and integrity. SegHIS is a web-based software and all its functions can be accessed using a common web browser thus, there is no need for a special user interface software. All program modules are processed on the server side and module updates and extensions do not require changes on the browsers thus it eliminates end-user downtime during system update or upgrade. Its design supports multiple physical and virtual server configurations for high availability, speed and efficiency. SegHIS’ modular architecture and integrated system assure the hospitals and healthcare organizations that the solution can keep pace with the growing and dynamic healthcare and regulatory environment.
- Integrated System - SegHIS seamlessly link patient’s record with other clinical information systems and other databases. LIS, RIS and PACS are integrated using high-level-7 (HL-7) and DICOM standards.
- Security - SegHIS is secure. All entries to departments, clinics, services, functions and sub-functions where data is entered or changed are password protected with inherent information audit security. A user must have access permission with limited hierarchical privileges for the function that he wants to use. This means that a physician with access to a patient’s therapy progress module has no automatic access permission to the nursing ward management.
- Data Privacy - SegHIS respects and observes the laws and regulations regarding data privacy specially the protection of medical records, patient’s medical history, and organizational, business and trade secrets. All entries to SegHIS modules where patient’s data can be viewed, changed, or deleted require proper access permission.
Segworks for Multi-Branch / Clinic Operation
SegHIS, along with SegFIS, supports multi-branch/clinic operation. It can be deployed in a master (main office) and slave (branch / clinic) configuration whereby branch / clinic financial, clinical, and administrative data automatically flow to the master server located at the main office for data consolidation, reporting and analysis. Branch / clinic slave server can operate independently in the event of a Wide Area Network (WAN) outage. The branch / clinic data will automatically synchronize with the master server once the WAN link is re-established.
Multi-branch/clinic configuration allows for sharing and transferring of patients’ record within the hospital’s network giving patients the flexibility to decide which branch / clinic to visit based on doctor’s availability and location and patient’s convenience.
Segworks Financial Information System (SegFIS) is a full-featured financial system developed using open-source technology. SegFIS is fully integrated with SegHIS, maintaining unified data entry and formatting. This also ensures accurate recognition and reporting of financial data while working seamlessly with SegHIS to deliver an end-to-end worry free hospital business operation. SegFIS automatically captures expenses and revenue from the various profit centers allowing for real-time monitoring and viewing of operational and financial data.
