Abstract

A flexible software system that is adaptable to a variety of information management uses across different psychosocial service departments in hospital settings is presented. The system is designed with two goals: first, the report generation, patient tracking, and billing components of the system should streamline the administration of clinical services; second, the data collected are in a format that allows for ongoing program evaluation research. Initially developed for consultation liaison psychiatry, the system has now been adapted for a social work department and is being adapted to hospice, home care, patient representative, and pastorial care departmental uses.
