Description of the ICT system There is a range of technologies in the following essay I am going to describe the ICT system used in Whipps Cross Hospital, by talking about the input and outputs, processors, storage and ports/cables and different software's. Input devices > Keyboards are one of the devices for entering information in a computer, a hardware input device consisting of an array of keys that the user presses in order to enter text into the computer. For the Macintosh script management system, a keyboard-layout resource that provides for keyboard input in a given script system. In this sense, to change keyboards means to activate a different keyboard layout, rather than physically switching keyboards, this includes keyboards the most frequently used device. Which inputs codes and navigates the system in Whipps Cross Hospital, they connect the keyboard and what even is type is seen on the screen. > Mouse a hand-operated electronic device that navigates throw the computer ,controlling the coordinates of a cursor on your computer screen as you move it around on a pad; on the bottom of the device is a ball that rolls on the surface of the pad; "a mouse takes much more room than a trackball". It helps staff at Whipps Cross navigate through the computer system affectively. ...read more.


> Monitors; A computer display, monitor or screen is a computer peripheral device capable of showing still or moving images generated by a computer and processed by a graphics card. Monitors generally conform to one or more display standards. Sometimes the name "display" is preferred to the word "monitor", as the latter is perceived to be ambiguous alongside the other senses of "monitor" meaning "machine-level debugger" or "thread synchronization mechanism". The monitors come with a stand that allows the adjustment of the height of the monitor. Whipps Cross Hospital used a monitor to see the data that appears on the computer screen. > A photocopy machine is an electronic duplicator that fuses a reproduced image to plain bond paper. it is a process which makes paper copies of documents and other visual images quickly and cheaply. The prevalence of its use is one of the factors that prevented the development of the paperless office heralded early in the digital revolution. You need a photocopy machine to photocopy important documents like a patient's birth certificate in Whipps Cross Hospital. Most photocopy machines in Whipps Cross Hospital work as follows: * A copier drum is given a positive charge. * The image from the original copy illuminates the charged drum and a latent image is formed. ...read more.


Whipps Cross Hospital need this softwear so they can run the computer more easily. > Programming software usually provides tools to assist a programmer in writing computer programs and software using different programming languages in a more convenient way. The tools include text editors, compilers, interpreters, linkers, debuggers, and so on. An Integrated development environment (IDE) merges those tools into a software bundle, and a programmer may not need to type multiple commands for compiling, interpreter, debugging, tracing, and etc., because the IDE usually has an advanced graphical user interface, or GUI. Whipps Cross Hospital need this because they can use software programming. > Application software allows end users to accomplish one or more specific (non-computer related) tasks. Typical applications include industrial automation, business software, educational software, medical software, databases, and computer games. Businesses are probably the biggest users of application software, but almost every field of human activity now uses some form of application software. It is used to automate all sorts of functions.Whipps Cross need this so they can do different taskes so it will be easier for them and more faster. In conclusion Whipps cross hospital need all sort of ICT to make their work more faster and easier. with all the different devices they can save all the work on the computer and use all the input and outputs which makes life much more easier.
