This review concerns the effective development, implementation and use of information technology platforms and software for supporting the effective management of human resources within healthcare organisations and, in some cases, across healthcare systems. Basic HRIS provide a means of documenting personnel characteristics and roles, scheduling rotas and managing payment. More sophisticated HRIS can help to support internal quality improvement through responsive audit, provide intelligence for senior managers to enable smarter, learning health systems, and to inform future planning and strategy. While stand-alone systems exist, some HRIS are part of a more general health information or business system.
