The department has a state-of-the art IT infrastructure that supports all hospital functions. It has a computer network system that covers the whole of the Hospital’s area with a capacity to support over 400 nodes at a time. Interlink between buildings is through fibre optic to make sure that speed is not compromised. With this network infrastructure, comes over 700 computers that are attached to it.

The hospital functions are run through the integrated Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) application called Jeeva.
