The stages of the process of improving the medical records and their integration with different information sources, through information network systems, have led to the idea of decentralization and communication of information between more than one hospital and a medical institution, and even more through the Internet, which has enabled millions of users to rely on it as a source for the search for medical information (Wager et al., 2005) .

Problem of the study :- The researcher's knowledge of the health services at King Faisal Hospital shows that the health information systems currently in use have an impact on the medical and administrative fields in terms of preparing statistical reports related to the work and the transfer of laboratory results from different departments and all operations related to the patient's record. Nevertheless, the system does not process medical orders electronically and does not provide all the information for patients in an integrated manner, and the system does not allow to completely dispense with the medical paper record as well, therefore; there is a relationship between health information and the performance of human resources thus leading to forming the problem of the study through the following main question :-What is the impact of health information systems on the performance of human resources (HR) in King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Taif?
