The purpose of this study is to develop an internet based hospice information service system as a solution to the problems identified in our previous studies. Databases and homepage were designed and developed for the information needed for the hospice care and these services were available through the Internet. The hospice information service system has three subsystems. Frrst subsystem, which is training and education for the hospice care personnel includes general hospice information, pain and symptom management, the role of hospice care program information, and hospice care standard. Second subsystem which is patient management includes patient's general information, medical record, nursing record, major symptoms and nursing care plan, statistical data management, and hospice care facilities. Third subsystem includes Q and A for patient, family members, and hospice care team members. The system was tested through providing hospice care to the terminally ill patients and their family members by home visiting nurses. Through this study, it was found that hospice information system is very effective for those who need hospice care at home. But in order for the system to be more effective, system needs to be upgraded with more information on spiritual and social welfare and specialists who provided spiritual care and social welfare need to be included in the hospice care team.
