Hospital
Management system(HMS) is a web app-based system in which patients, doctor and
administrative parties can improve the process of consultation and other
clinical affairs. A web application is a piece of software that can be accessed
from a browser (web client).

Web-apps
come in form of HTML, JavaScript, CSS as these languages depend on the browser
to render an executable file. HMS is a dynamic application which uses a server
to deal with request processing from a client and storing and retrieving database
from a cloud-based server. HMS web app is designed to help hospitals and
clinics manage information and data of their patients, employees (e.g. doctors)
from administrative level. 

 

 

Fig1.
How web-apps works.

 

The
system includes the processes of registration of a patient from devices of
their choice, the registration process stores patient’s details into system’s
database. The process provides the patient with a unique identification
number(id) that will help identify his/her records from the hospital or
clinic’s database.  Since users go
through a registration process, all users must have a unique id number and a
unique username which can be used during the sign in process.

 

HMS
is meant to deliver a system in which will eliminate unnecessary steps such as;
manual registration from a front desk, front desk appointment booking, phone
call enquiries etc. that lead to a patient and doctor’s consultation. HMS involves
different modules e.g. Patient module, Doctors module and Admin module. The
modules will directly communicate with the database from a web client to effectively
perform their tasks. The HMS is a simple yet powerful system that is designed
to provide seamless flow of processes while making a friendly interface and
easily accessible.

 

The
HMS can manage multiple of users of the system. 
Users can function with the system as how it is designed to function
with minimal errors and with efficient manner. The system should deliver the
functionality of quickly gathering and data manipulation along as summarization
of results. This paper states problems that the current system faces and
provides solutions to the stated problems. 
The project design is meant to improve the consultation and relation
between admins, doctors and patients while managing other hospital and clinic
affairs.

 

SOFTWARE
REQUIREMENT:

·        
Front end: Html, Css and Javascript

·        
Back-end: Php

·        
Database: Mysql

·        
Operating system: Windows 10

·        
Run-time Environment: Wampserver

 

Existing
system:

·        
Systems rely on the work of the front desk
receptionist

·        
The front desk paper work reduces the
efficiency of the system

·        
Redundancy of data storage e.g. having same patient’
name appearing several times

·        
Systems that rely on paperwork are likely to
lose their data in a problem such as fire etc. but cloud based will always be
there.

CONTEXT:

·        
Literature review

Management
system(MS)- Over the years, there have been many different MS in the IT industry.
MS is a framework of policies, processes and procedures used by an organization
to ensure that it can fulfil all the tasks required to achieve its objectives. MS
take the role of satisfying the tasks requirements posed by users of the system
such as from an administrative level to a user level. MS are developed around organization
to suits the requirements of an organization. What can management system do for
you? A research by British Standard Institution shows that business that adopt
to a management system gained some ideal benefits such as:

·        
44% achieved cost savings

·        
74% acquired new customers and retained
existing clients

·        
77% boosted their overall performance

·        
75% experienced improved customer service

The research also shows us why the many organization try
and obtain a management system certification. Give below are few reasons to why:

·        
To comply with the requirements of the customer

·        
To protect the company/organization through instituting
best practices.

·        
To grow the organization while extending and
reaching out for more customers and customer satisfaction which increased the
revenue.

 

System
means “an integrated assembly of interacting elements or components designed
to carry out cooperatively a predetermined function.” Kenneth & Richard (1995).
 There many different systems in the
technology world, in this case we look at it from an organisational perspective.
This includes multiple users, technologies, processes and services.

Can a
management system increase performance to an organization?

“Organization
performance is a true measure of how well a system of management is function” Kenneth
& Richard (1995). This means that a true measurement of knowing if the implemented
system is working is by looking up at the organization’s performance.

 

 

HMS-
This is web-based system that allows the management of hospital with all their
patients and employees such as administrative, financial etc. The system
integrates information on admins, doctors and patients into a single web-app with
different modules to comply with their tasks. The development of HMS is meant
to eliminate unnecessary steps such; the visit to the front desk for
registration, hospitals paper work etc., This will allow patients to achieve
their goals of registration, appointment booking, communication with doctors etc.
A research was conducted by Morilla et al (2017) on implementation of
technology in healthcare. A questionnaire was designed and validated by the
authors and later used to interview doctors/specialists to study and evaluate
thought and opinions of doctors/physicians on e-healthcare. Out of 930
physicians, 739 were able to respond to questionnaire with an 82% response
rate.

The
outcome showed that physicians believed in the importance of e-healthcare. The
research claimed that “Professionals with previous experience with it are more
open to its implementation and consider that the benefits of technology
outweigh its possible difficulties and shortcomings. Physicians demanded
projects with appropriate funding and technology, as well as specific training
to improve their technological abilities.”.

 

3.   
NEW IDEAS

 

Proposed
System:

·        
Modules-System in which is divided into three
modules (Admin, Patient and Doctor)

·        
Private communication-Direct messages between
parties e.g. doctor to patient communications or admin to doctors etc.

·        
Time saving-Automated online system which eliminates
the processes before consultation.

·        
Cloud based database-Data storage will be
performed in the cloud

 

Benefits
of the proposed system:

·        
Accuracy

·        
Reliability

·        
No redundancy

·        
Immediate cloud storage

·        
User friendly

 

 

Limitation
of the proposed system:

·        
Cloud based database-Since the tasks of the system
will be done online, a network connection is needed to performance and access
relevant data and tasks.

·        
Computer system knowledge-Since the system is
not familiar to everyone, some knowledge of basic computer knowledge is needed
to navigate around the system and an understanding English language is required
to read and understand tasks and information you are expected to do.
