Abstract

This paper introduces a web-based healthcare information system (WB-HIS). The developed HIS consists of secure web server that stores the patient's database, internet infrastructure, review station (client PC) and client personal digital assistant (PDA). The proposed system has many attractive features. First, the WB-HIS provides a global communication and thus satisfies the new requirements of modern HIS to shift from hospital-centred HIS to a global one to be accessed from anywhere and at anytime. Second, the WB-HIS helps the physicians to increase their medical outcomes because they can see more number of patients during his day time and access remotely the patient's information which is clinically high demanded especially in case of emergencies. Finally, it facilitates real-time patient assessment and analysis during examination and diagnosis which improves the healthcare service.
