Abstract

The goal of the project was to develop a disease tracking electronic health record (EHR) system for Ghana in order to improve efficiency within medical facilities and to increase the quality of patient care. There are only a few medical facilities that have implemented EHR systems, and even fewer with immunization and disease tracking. Our proposed system, VermaMS, stores a history of patient visits for every patient diagnosed with malaria, tuberculosis, or meningitis. Users of the application are able to view patient data graphically as well as generate a report that contains information on each patient’s visit. VermaMS is intended to be used in conjunction with the current EHR systems, but it could potentially be developed into a full EHR system of its own in the future.
