Abstract

Visiting patients in rural areas is a common practice for small health units since most people live far away and they do not have time and money to see a doctor when they get sick. At present, a doctor visits patients at home and records their information on paper. Such information has to be manually keyed in to a hospital system like HOSxP or HCIS, and unintended mistakes may occur.

Our project is to record the patient information during the home visit by a doctor using an android phone. The system can digitally store patient information during home visit on an android phone instead of recording them traditionally on paper. The project is implemented using MySQL as a database system and HOSxP as a hospital system. From our preliminary experiments, we found the problem of a conflict in MySQL between HOSxP and web phpMyAdmin which is our web server. In conclusion, the project can help record patient information efficiently during the home visit, and can transfer patient information to HOSxP.
