Program for Electronic Medical Records Management
System and Software Engineering
Electronic medical record (EMR) is a patient medical record presented in the electronic format. As technologies tend to become an increasingly significant part of humanity lives, medicine also takes part of this innovative transition. Current trend nowadays is the permanent replacement of the traditional medical records that are created and filled manually by doctors by the electronic ones. Because of this, increasingly number of clinics and hospitals around the world are experiencing the advantages of moving away from paper-based systems. However, there is a number of issues connected with the modern medical systems that allow to manage EMRs. For instance, the inflexibility of the inputs that are used to store patient data is among them. In addition, the long process of the implementation and refinement of the system for the specific purposes of the hospital and its permanent maintenance during system usage when new data must be gathered might be the example of such an issue. This thesis is devoted to creation of the software system that is able to tackle the problems identified in the current systems. In this thesis, the key issues of current medical software are defined that are applied as the base for the development of the new system. Moreover, this thesis presents the stages of the system development, showing broadly the design of the system, giving a detailed overview of the underlying architecture, and providing the information concerning the development and deployment. Finally, the description of the system evaluation which was performed by 12 doctors is shown.
