Abstract

Health care management is essential to the financial balance of institutions and to the improvements of patient and organization documental processes. In order to achieve those aims, an important step is to observe the indicators that start to point out positive evidences when using document management and process automation in a health care institution, through Information and Communication Technologies in the e-Health system. The main purpose of this study was to gather data and indices about the issue under study, through a literature review. Analysis of American, European, and Brazilian articles in academic or non-academic health care organizations indicates share and use of patient’s data, that can improve applied systems performance; analysis of processes; indicators of quality of provided service and patient’s quality of care and safety; diagnosis and prescription of medications and decrease of data information errors, thus achieving level 7 in the Healthcare Informatics Management and Systems Society (HIMSS).
