DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED SYSTEM FOR THE METHODOLOGICAL TEST ANALYSIS (A CASE STUDY OF SICKLE CELL DISEASE). A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
This work is specially put together not to replace medical doctors or medical laboratory scientists but rather to assist them in accelerating in their diagnostic work which will go a long way to eliminate the trial and error method of treatment (which the doctors usually do while waiting for the lab result which would be detrimental to the patient.
In view of this, a careful study and understanding of this research will assist users, medial doctors & lab scientists. It will educate them on now best a computer can aid medical diagnosis for optimum service to the public.
The project will go further to educate out lab scientists / doctors on the need to accumulated salient aspects of the medical know-how of even the most experienced specialist in the computer. So as to eliminate the vacuum that would have been created when specialist dies or is in capacitate.
BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Health is generally said to be wealth. To acquire this wealth either for personal or national needs, one require to be healthy hence the need for adequate Medicare especially in the area of diagnosis. Since there is a good relationship between the job output and the health of the workers, a good Medicare is vital.
Unfortunately, in most developing notions including Nigeria, adequate Medicare is lacking due to low standard of technologies know how and manual handling of most medical problem. As observed by Iyiama H.C and Chukwu. D. C. very often, people in developing countries who are critically ill are rushed abroad for special treatment because it is felt that medical facilities at home is inadequate. This is simply because at home is inadequate. This is simply because computer aided Medicare has become a reality in many developed countries. It is also a known fact that the production of qualified medical doctors, medical lab. Scientists and other medical personnel is on the increase but this is not enough to meet the health needs of the increasing population. The return of patients to a doctors, samples to lab scientist is still high. This situation creates problem, because proper and adequate medical attention to patients is far fetched.
