The process of assessing needs for a computer application in a hospital pharmacy is described. The variables discussed for which data are needed include hospital-specific characteristics, personnel, data storage, data retrieval, data transmission interfaces, and hardware. By determining these needs, the buyer will be able to know the functions that are necessary and the vendors' abilities to meet the buyer's needs.
