DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED ANTENATAL INFORAMTION SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF PARK-LANE HOSPITAL ENUGU). A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
The Antenatal unit in the outpatient Department of any hospital letters for medical advices and treatments to payment mothers before delivery. Antenatal care is all about material and fetal care, to see that the baby is developing without malformation and giving mothers advice an what to eat, type of exercise needed scanning and pathology rest. This project work tends to design and implement a system (computerized) that offers information on Antenatal care as of when due (Just-in-time) to effect discussion making in specially the case study which is Parklane Specialist Hospital Enugu that will pursue and meet the aim of the existing manual Antenatal information system but with high reliability, accuracy, speed and less cost.
An information system provides information for decision makers in any organization, which are required for the great functions of planning coordinating and controlling, therefore it is necessary to discover an adequate means of making the information available to everyone concerned, this is because for decision to be made correctly and timely the information must be consistent, accurate and reliable (just-in-time) to affect the operation for which it is being provided.
Thus, this project work design and implementation of a computerized information system of Antenatal care is aimed of provided necessary information about all operations. The antenatal unit which are very necessary for proper control and coordination of the unit.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The case study of the project work is parklane general Hospital. The Antenatal unit is an aspect of the outpatient department. The Antenatal unit is incharge of carrying for material and fetal well being before childbirth. This section of the hospital is facing hitches presently due to the manual method of information processing, as most pregnant mother don’t enjoy good and timely services. Presently apart from time leg, the case study meet it objectives any way, but not reliably and timely.
