Lady Ridgeway Hospital, Colombo is now knowing as the largest public hospital for children in the world. It provides treatments for children under 12 years old and serves as the national pediatric care center for the whole county and as local hospital for children in Colombo. LRH provides wide range of 24 hours’ services for completely free of charge. The hospital is equipped with well trained and qualified staff and excellent facilities. Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia and Critical Care unit of LRH is a specialized unit which provides critical and surgical care for children struggling with heart diseases.
Currently unit is using several applications such as spread sheets and word documents for capturing, storing and processing information. However mainly information handling is done manually. The current system is quiet complex, and difficult to manage, due to use of papers and spreadsheets. Data retrieval is time consuming and needs lot of effort to track the patient history.
The main area an Information Technology (IT) solution was needed is for handling follow up records of inward patients and retrieving discharged patient history. The system facilitates computer based storage and quick retrieval of data of inward and discharged patients. Also system can track particular patient information and schedule of the relevant patient’s surgery plan. System will provide shift allocations for Medical officers which currently done using a manual system. Solution will be provided to the problems such as unfairness and invisibility of the process which can be raised when shift allocation is done manually. The solution will facilitate the unit administration to analyze information of the patients by the reports generated through the system such as Mortality reports, Discharge summaries. Intensive care provided by the unit will be enhanced by linking information and keeping track of them.
The system is web based and used server is Apache. It is based on client-server architecture and developed in accordance to object oriented principals therefore it can be easily extended in future. System is developed using languages such as PHP, HTML and Java Script. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used for modeling. Database used is a MySQL database. Bootstrap framework has been used, therefore the system is accessible through several devices such as Laptops, Tablets and Mobile phones.|
