Abstract—Accurate and timely information is crucial to good health delivery system. This is necessary for medical personnel to effectively perform their life saving assignments. Nevertheless, accurate and timely information are far from many developing nations’ health care delivery systems due to various shortcomings in their medical record departments. For easy access to necessary information in hospital complex, this paper presents a framework for developing nations due to the heavy cost of wireless communication equipments. In addition, the architecture for the implementation of the software is discussed and performance comparison between the present record keeping (manual record keeping) in hospital complexes, and the proposed scheme were carried out using response time and cost implication of the systems as performance metrics. Mathematical models were developed for the two schemes. The algorithms for agent authentication on mobile devices and agent verification at the sever side before update and retrieval of information is presented. The simulation result shows that automating this sector of economy has a lot of tremendous benefits to the developing nations’ health care delivery system.
