A trend toward hospital computerization is accelerated and clinical work computerization are adopted in many hospitals to contribute to the improvement of medical work and become useful for service of patients. Total hospital information system (HIS) based on order-entry system (GUNMAS) is going on smoothly to date. In HIS of GUNMAS, in vivo nuclear medicine examinations system are involved in physiological and radiological examination system which include plain X-P, MRI, ECG, and so on, because in vivo nuclear medicine examination subjects to a person as well as the order physiological or radiological examinations. In contrast, in vitro nuclear medicine examination system is involved in clinical laboratory system. The medical physician selects the necessary item such as examination's name, purpose and the order on CRT, and then, the date of scintigraphy is reserved. While the reception of samples for in vitro nuclear medicine examination is performed to feed of patient's number into HIS (GUNMAS). In the field of in vivo nuclear medicine ordering system, GUNMAS is connected to the Nuclear Medicine Computer System through a computer system which includes reporting and data base functions. Ordering and reporting for in vivo nuclear medicine examination can be done by these two computer systems. The introduction of HIS (GUNMAS) is useful to save labor and rationalize the clinical work, which contribute to better service for patients.
