Hospital Management System

JOMO KENYATTA UNIVERSITY OF AGRICULTURE AND TECHNOLOGY KAREN CAMPUS DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND COMPUTING DIPLOMA IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY COMPUTER SYSTEMS PROJECT Project proposal Title: HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR ST THOMAS HOSPITAL By CAROLINE KIRIGO MILLS JKC-DO1-0044/2010 SUPERVISOR: MR ALEX WATILA Signature………………………………… Date………………………………….. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Hospital management system is a computerized system designed and programmed to deal with day to day operations taking place. The program can look after inpatients, outpatients, records, database treatments, status illness, billings in the pharmacy and labs.

It also maintains hospital information such as ward id, doctors in charge and department administering. The purpose of the project is to computerize the Front Office Management of Hospital to develop software which is user friendly, simple, fast, and cost – effective. It deals with the collection of patient’s information, diagnosis details, etc. Traditionally, it was done manually. The study was confined to St Thomas Hospital. The project outlines all the process followed to come up with the software that is from analysis to testing the system. Contents EXECUTIVE SUMMARY…………………………………………………………. 2 TABLE OF

This application provides a way to record this information and to access these in a simple way. The existing systems provide the basic functionalities needed to be handled in a hospital management environment. There is no intelligence of the software in such cases. In the existing system all the patient details, doctor availability details and regarding the tests done to the patients prescribed by the doctor is maintained manually by the receptionist. If a patient has to be admitted we need to check the availability of the bed which consumes lots of time if done manually.

Also there is no proper search technique to check the patient information. It is a very difficult task to maintain all the finance management system, and the records which maintain doctor details, of the hospital by using this existing system. There are also many loopholes when we look at the security of the system. These are the main disadvantages of the existing systems that are overcome in the proposed model. PROPOSED SYSTEM: In the proposed system, the student going to provide solutions to all the above mentioned problems by automating the whole hospital management system by using integrated software that handles the whole system.

The proposed system is very easy to operate. Speed and accuracy are the main advantages of proposed system. There is no redundancy of data. The data are stored in the computer’s secondary memories like hard disk, etc. it can be easily receive and used at any time. The proposed system will easily handle all the data and the work done by the existing systems. The proposed systems eliminate the drawbacks of the existing system to a great extent and it provides tight security to data. RESEARCH QUESTIONS
