CareWare® is a Hospital Management Information System that has been developed using Oracle Relational Database Management System and its development tools. As a result, the system is totally hardware platform independent.
CareWare® uses International standards for coding schemes. Coding schemes such as ICD-9-CM, the recently released ICD-10, CPT and ISBT for blood transfusion, are supported within the system. The CareWare® system, is currently going through a process of modifications to comply with the HL7 Standard (Health Level 7 Standard Protocol).

The system is working online in an integrated environment -- this implies that all the transactions affected in any of the modules are reflected in a consolidated nature at any point of query. Health Insurance Contract management and pricing policies are efficiently managed through the system.
