Mulago Hospital has adopted new technologies that promise to provide significant cost
savings and productivity improvements. A by-product of the adoption of this new
technology is that business transactions and business decisions are being made
electronically. Business records are being created, disseminated and stored in electronic
format. The use of these new technologies has improved Mulago 's capacity to respond
to customer queries and has generally reduced the time required to conduct a business
transaction. The adoption of the new technologies has also resulted in a change in the
nature of business records. Mulago Hospital has yet to implement processes to ensure
that evidence of these business decisions and transactions is properly managed. Failure
to implement adequate records management controls now, will result in exposure to
litigation, and loss of productivity as employees struggle to find information they need
in order to do their work. This document proposes the implementation of
comprehensive electronic record.keeping processes and systems to ensure that electronic
business evidence at Mulago Hospital is properly managed.
Mulago Hospital uses a manual system for storing, managing and classifying there
records in the hospital which makes the search for patient's records very difficult and
takes a lot time, most of the records in Mulago Hospital are stored in stores where they
can easily be damaged and the security is not that good. A person can easily walk into
the store and get the file, this makes the patients file to be in real quandary. The system
is so exasperating as a person has to spend a lot of time looking for a persons file and at
times records may not be traced because they are so many and in bulk.
Thus a need for an Automated Records and Document management system that will be
able to manage all the records in the Hospital, this system will be able to capture data,
register all patients records in the database, make searching easier, generate reports for
patients, provide security to the records and patients will able to have access to there
records within seconds, handle all electronic documents in the Hospital to mention.
