Application will have to be robust and can not afford to have down time as every one will be relying on the data availability 24/7. This requires necessary security and redundancy measures in place. Information unavailability is not an option and will risk patients lives.
A large hospital is equal to a small city with huge demand on type of systems that would be needed to manage their operations. One vendor can not do all, hence the system should be capable of communicating with external third party softwares through standard protocols in order to deliver the functionality required for the department users without the need to duplicate the patient data. Interoperability is not a choice, it’s a mandatory requirement in any HIS. Standards like HL7, FHIR, IHE, DICOM etc help to achieve that.
