Users and Accessibility Rights

The hospital management system application is designed specifically for three types of users and is intelligently bifurcated for accessibility between

  1. Clerk
  2. Nurse
  3. Doctor

1. Clerk account:

Once the patient arrives at the hospital, they have to check on their confirmation of the appointment with the clerks available. There are multiple clerks available for patient’s convenience.

The clerk has been assigned with two major rights

Register Patient

If the patient is new and has come for the first time then the clerks can assist them with registration for the first time. They can generate a print number after the initial registration process.

Validate Patient

If the patient is already registered then the clerk has to validate the details when the patient comes for the first time into the kiosk system. After Validation, they are assigned to the Nurse account’s queue.

2. Nurse account:

After the clerk prints the number, multiple nurses are working in the hospital who are assigned with a list of patients and based on the number of patients in the Nurse queue they are diverted towards the specialists.

In the nurse's system, there will be a patient queue where a list of patients will be displayed as per their appointment numbers. Nurses can click on patients and get all details about the patient profile and the patient’s past visit history. Nurses can capture the patient’s allergies, medical conditions, chronic medication, surgical history, family history, and lifestyle.

The nurse can also check the patient's vitals and add vitals information to the patient’s current appointment. Later, the nurse can also assign that patient to the related department’s queue so that doctors of the ward can check the patient on time.

If a patient's health is critical then the Nurse can directly admit the patient to the emergency ward.

3. Doctor account:

Whenever a new doctor registers himself in the application, he has the option to select a list of departments he specializes in. After the selections have opted, the doctors are assigned to these specialized departments. Doctors can select patients from the queue and the assigned but cannot see that patient of other doctors in the queue list of the same department.

Doctors have access to all the patient details, they can validate the records stored by the nurse and edit it if required. With an option to re-capture vitals. Doctors can also capture additional patient allergies, medical conditions, chronic medication, surgical history, family history, and lifestyle.
