The redesign of business processes enables major improvements to be achieved in performance, cost, quality, and technical support services. Medical informatics will play a vital role in taking a systematic approach of using information technology to provide health care industry solutions. Several health care management consulting surveys estimate that on a national basis annual cost reductions of more than $36 billion are possible through the effective use of information technology. The main objectives of Business Process Reengineering (BPR) are as follows: develop new business processes that support and improve the delivery of services; Continually evaluate the enterprises' structure and operations to achieve more responsive systems; use new information technology methods, processes, and tools to reach desired organizational goals and optimize organizational functions, capabilities, and operations; develop long-range plans to support the business goals of the organization
