Introduction: Given the significant impact of dialysis adequacy on the quality of life and survival of hemodialysis patients, an information system for assessment of the treatment plan is necessary.

Objectives: In this study, a web-based information system was developed to monitor hemodialysis adequacy in hemodialysis center of Taleghani hospital of Urmia.

Patients and Methods: The study is organized into four phases; determination of minimum data set, designing an information system for monitoring the dialysis adequacy, implementing in a hospital setting and finally impact of the information system on dialysis adequacy.

Results: This system designed in ASP.NET platform and C# programming language and SQL, server database was applied for managing the data. This system implemented in server of hemodialysis center of the hospital. The results of statistical analysis showed that information system on the hemodialysis adequacy indicators has a significant effect (P<0.05).

Conclusion: We found that the designed information system is capable of promoting hemodialysis adequacy. 

Keywords: Information system, Hemodialysis adequacy, End-stage renal disease

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

The designed information system can determine dialysis time, based on the NKF-K/DOQI guidelines and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment based on the hemodialysis adequacy indicators. This information system helps the nephrology specialists in the timely identification of patients with inadequacy status by creating the necessary alerts and reminders.
