A survey of utilization and demand of Rehabilitation Information System (RIS) for out-patient clinic service was done by questionnaires from July 1999 to December 1999. One hundred and seventeen responses (52.0% of total samples) were adopted for analysis. The questionnaires included data base, utilization of rehabilitation information system for outpatient clinic service and demands of specific system . The results showed that 77.8% of rehabilitation clinics used computer system for outpatient clinic service; and 67.5% of them had electric chart record. Most of clinics had prescriptive function including pharmacy, laboratory request and radiology order, only few clinics could read result from computer. Rehabilitation prescriptions were used on RIS at 67.5% clinics, but integrative function was limited. More than 80% of clinics had demands for integrated rehabilitation information system. In general, only primitive function of information system was available in rehabilitation outpatient clinic service, even in medical center. Difference between demand and utilization of rehabilitation information system was noted, so we suggested that a friendly design of integrated rehabilitation information system should be promoted in future.
