The processes and management of healthcare records are not trivial exercise; there is need for application of ICT to healthcare management system in order to meet globally accepted health care systems. Many healthcare systems have been designed and implemented, but they do not adequately incorporate nursing process. Also, most of them do not consider the needs and aspirations of patients. In this work, a modified framework based on Orlando’s nursing process focuses on improvement in the patient’s behavior by actions that are based on a patient’s needs found through effective interaction with the patient was designed and proto type implemented. The design was implemented using Visual Basic.Net and SQL because of their supports for implementing web-based systems. The system was hosted on a website for a period of two months. Real life data in respect of medical practitioners’ and patients were captured, analyzed and evaluated. Users interacted with the hosted system during the evaluation period. The system was evaluated using usability test and structured questionnaire. The result showed 93.10% participation efficiency, while ease of use, operational efficiency and data protection of Healthcare Information system scored more than 80%.This showed that the Healthcare Information Systems (HIS) is an effective life saving system that can influence and enhance health-workers’ quality of services, timely precision decision making process and reduced cost of health care significantly through effective healthcare management. It is applicable in any healthcare environment irrespective of their social economic and technology settings. The application of the framework will prevents the spread of deadly diseases like Ebola Virus.
