Abstract: Ranking of Healthcare Management Information System (HMIS) help practitioners to select the best from the trivial many for the success of the organization. The objective of this study is to rank the CSF of HMIS using a suitable MultiCriteria Decision Making technique (MCDM). Here, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is the tool used to determine the relative importance of the CSF in influencing the adoption and use of HMIS. In order to rank the factors, this study is planned and performed in two stages. At the first stage to identify the critical success factors of HMIS, a through literature review is made. At the second stage, a pair wise comparison is designed based on AHP method. The weightage got from AHP can also be used for ranking of various HMIS installations in different hospitals.
