INTRODUCTION Introduction Nowadays, information technology plays as one of the key role in the development of different field of studies in our society. As it develops and advances rapidly, it gives more chances for the people to live in a much efficient and hassle free life. Information technology truly is considered as one of our needs in our generation. In medicine, education, engineering, agriculture, geography, communication, etc., information technology has already been a part of all the field mention for the past years. Health care is one of the most prioritized fields in government. Acquiring the most high-quality medical care had been a challenge in the country. Only hospitals from around the urban community offers complete and extensive health care, while on rural areas medical care is depleting. The problem is not just because of lack of budget of the government, but also because of the difficulty in managing and administering a hospital with the entire complex operation taking place. With the help of information technology, the country can attain the quality of health care that the other countries have. There are a lot of studies that contributed a lot in the field of medicine. Studies concerning about the breakthroughs in disease treatment, medicine are being invented as well as laboratory equipments. Yet, managing

and administering the process and day to day transaction in a hospital still concerns a lot of work to be done. The Hospital Management System for St. Mattheus Medical Hospital, Inc. is a study that will guide the administration of the said hospital. This study provides aid managing, administering and tracking information and processes needed by the hospital. This study will be a big help in the development of health care as well as patient care in the field of medicine.
Project Context Information System is an integrated set of components for collecting, storing, processing, and communicating information.
Business firms, other organizations, and individuals in contemporary society rely on information systems to manage their operations, compete in the marketplace, supply services, and augment personal lives. As the meaning implies, information system plays a very viral role in connecting people’s life by means of information. Information system continuously grows and already extended its reach to the different fields aside from business. The medicine field in example is one of the fields that really are contributed in the advancement of information system. The application Hospital Management System falls under the category of Information System because the application
HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR ST. MATTHEUS MEDICAL HOSPITAL, INC.
interacts directly to the user and gives information especially about the user’s needs. Information technology is one of the factors in the development of fields such as the Academe, Medicine, Engineering, Business, and others. In this study, Information technology is under the field of Medicine. The study gives aid to the administration of the St. Mattheus Medical Hospital, Inc. to efficiently administer and manage all their processes and daily transaction. St. Mattheus Medical Hospital,Inc. located at #60 Gen. Luna St. Banaba, San Mateo, Rizal was established year 2006 .It offers all medical services except dental services and other laboratory services like kidney dialysis, CT scan, and Echocardiogram(2D echo). They
have approximately 105 employees from their director down to their maintenance staff. Manual work is done in some of the departments. Hospital Management System addresses all the major functional area of modern multi-specialty hospital. It provides a more efficient way in managing all the processes involved from the registration of the patient, room assignment, doctor scheduling, test and surgery, laboratories and down to the clearance of the patient. It will help St. Mattheus Medical hospital deal with all the day to day operations taking place. Purpose and Description
HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR ST. MATTHEUS MEDICAL HOSPITAL, INC.

Local technical support: Maintaining LAN requires a person with technical know-how to some extend which might be an obstacle to set up LAN in some areas. This has been planned to resolve by providing adequate training or identifying a person who can support more than one particular hospital from a central place.
