The use of computer networks is set to become an essential part of the ICT infrastructure in Saudi Arabia. They have the potential to be used in all aspects of society. As an example of an application domain, this study will investigate the likely system requirements for computer networks in Saudi University Hospitals. The principal aim of this study is to investigate the provision of a computer network system to link Saudi University Hospitals electronically in order to exchange medical information. To draw appropriate conclusions and make recommendations that are both systemically desirable and culturally feasible, empirical data have been collected via document analysis, direct observation, interviews and questionnaires, using a sample of 900 clinicians and computer staff from three University Hospitals.
