aim of talking informat4ion in any organization is to provide means whereby
information on the organizations, operation; activity can be made easily by
staff without having physical count for quantity.
in management information system (MIS) is the valuable resources which enables
a business or organization to steer in the right direction to achieve its
objective and attain a competitive advantage. This makes administration more
efficient and effective. Information tracking provides a relevant intelligence
to decision making at the right time.
One of the
major activities in the medical data processing is the maintenance of patients
record. When a patient visits a particular hospital for the first time, a
folder is prepared and an identification number known as the card member is
issued to the patient. This number is peculiar to only that patient and any
information on the patient is stored or accessed by searching out the hospital
folder bearing that number.
tracking of information on patients are collects and stored away in their
hospital folder. As these records increase with time, the hospital would have a
collection known as the medical history of the patient. This medical history be
very, voluminous, this makes it almost impossible to retrieve past records of
the patients that have been stored away for long.
these information tracking system is been done by the record officers who
collects information from different sections of the hospital and stores them
away as expected. The record officers may be able to maintain these information
but the process of retrieving and even storing is generally slow, time
consuming and possibly tedious.
computer-based system has been designed to tackle some of the problems attached
to information tracking while running a hospital. This is done basically by
introducing certain data processing standards and information into the
automated system to help govern and monitor the way the data and information is
stored, accessed, used and retrieve.
processed information are stored in computer and they can be use of electric
means. To prevent an epidemic outbreak within a region can only be provide a
necessary statistics towards the number of death caused by a disease and the
related solution, which can be used to tackle a disease.
can be retrieved on a specific problem hence it is by electronic means.
STATEMENT OF THE STUDY
The need for this study was based on the quest for an automated
system capable of monitoring the vast records associated with individual
patient, computer necessary information like bills and ensure that each patient
settles his/her bills and does not owe the hospital beyond an amount specified
by the management. Hospital especially large one face many problems while
trying to keep track of their patient’s records process and store information
on each of them manually. Patients most often have to wait a long time before
their files or hospital folder can be retrieved.
situation can be moist frustrating in cases of emergency where a patient
requires immediate attention but time is wasted in locating his/her file or
folder so that some information on patient medical history can be located.
concerning a patient cannot be shaved simultaneously by different medical
personnel because of file or folder can only be in one location at a time.
hospital is expected to keep record of the medical history of every patient for
easy referencing. Since these files are usually carried about from one place to
another, they are easily misplaced or accessed and manipulated by authorized
problems can lead to the deterioration and inefficiency in the services
provided by the hospital.
1.2 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
the difficulties faced by most hospitals in track keeping of information on
patients record in the hospital and also monitoring bills and depths owned
them, a study for an automated system was initiated with its main purpose of
providing hospital a system that is capable of handling entire retrieval,
storing and updating information about patients in the hospital.
provide a statistics for every patients in the hospital including bills of the
patients together will all cash payments made so as to provide on demand,
useful information of each patients personal record together with debts and
another purpose of designing the system is for it to provide any information
needed by a patient at any given time, thereby making it possible for patients
to have easy access to their medical record. It also sound an alarm for any
patient that owes the hospital more than the amount specified by the management
as the maximum debt the patient is allowed to owe. This will go along way in
providing the financial state of the hospital.
1.3 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
and objectives of the computerize system cannot be over emphasized. The use of
computer system has several advantages over the use of manual systems
especially as it regards keeping records of data and information, manipulating
and processing them, storing them dot future use retrieving them and generating
reports from them in as many copies as is desired by the user.
computerized system is aimed at aiding the hospital in creating files for
patients into two categories namely private and company patients so that for
consideration will be given according to ones category.
system will definitely increase the speed of operations within the hospital
thus increasing the efficiency and reliability of the hospital record keeping
system. This will in turn help in improving the services provided for the
patients who an satisfaction will like to boost the corporate image of the
computerized system is design for tracking information on patient record.
Due to the fact that the laboratory technician and doctors are sometimes
confused with symptoms and parasites observed and information received
concerning test of patients there is a need to develop a computer software with
which the medical doctor can rely upon and perform his job correctly thereby
administering the right treatments.
system is also design to develop a computer software whereby the medical
officer can get the information and data required as fast as possible and that
are accurate and reliable information to enhance the task of attending to
