HOW DOES HMS WORK ?
WHAT HMS CAN REALLY DO
The doctors can accept appointments from Patients fix appointment with patients and also use internal messaging to communicate with patients. They record prescriptions giving to each patient and can allot bed to patients. They also have access to the blood bank to check availability whenever there is need for blood transfusion for a patient.
Unlike the power possessed by the doctors, the nurses don’t have access to appointments or the right to prescribe medicine but they have the right to monitor Patient’s health progress and check the beds/wards. They also have access to blood banks and can generate their reports when necessary to check out progress made.
A question people might want to ask is! Why didn’t we include test results in the laboratory profile? The simple answer is that test results are sensitive documents that must not leak to the hands of just anyone except between the patient and the doctor. The laboratory scientist therefore doesn’t have the right to put patients test result in any of the profile but will be given as document to the right individuals when needed.
But he/she will be able to input the data of blood donors and also available blood samples in the blood bank for record purposes and easy accessibility by the doctors and nurses when needed.
The accountant’s major duty is to create invoice and enter all payment data on the portal. This is done in order to give room for the admin to be able to see the revenue progress in the hospital and as well be able to make managerial plans and decisions. The accountant will also have the access to check out notifications also.
The patient has access to the following: He can book appointments and check his drug prescriptions. The patient can also check the doctors in the hospital in order to book appointment with any of them if need be. She/he also has access to the blood bank in order to be aware of available blood samples in the laboratory. He/she has access to his/her medical history, operation history, and invoice and can send private messages to the doctors.
