Design and Implementation of a Hospital Database Management System (HDMS) for Medical Doctors

Amaechi James C., Agbasonu Valerian C., and Nwawudu Sixtus E.
Abstract—This paper aimed at designing and implementing an automated system that will alleviate the problem of handling patients’ data in a hospital. The researchers were motivated to embark on this project because of the inherent problems of the manual system of hospitals file management. This manual system has so many problems associated with it such as insecurity of files, poor file retrieval system and inefficient file update system etc. This paper examines an existing information system of a hospital and designed an automated system that can help Medical Doctors and those who handle hospitals’ data to perform their work more effectively and efficiently. The System would be developed with a Window, Apache, MySQL and PHP (WAMP) software. The HDBMS would be a web application that runs in a computer network. It would provide easy and fast access to stored data as needed by different users with security against unauthorized access. Any authorized user can add, delete and update data into the database base on their user-assigned-role. It would equally have the facility to give a unique identity for every persons and stores the details of every patient and the staff automatically. It includes a search facility to know the current status of each room in the hospital. A user can search availability of doctors and the details of a patient using the system. The interface is very user-friendly.

Index Terms—Hospitals, database, management, medical doctors, patients, system.
