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

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

The study was conceived to help the doctors, nurses and administration staff of the hospital to be fully guided in having the best and most efficient way in providing their hospital’s services to their patient. It was designed to aid the hospital staff to efficiently manage and administer their hospital’s daily transactions as well as the services they provide. For the Patient: The patients will be the main beneficiary of the proposed system. The application can ensure the patient that their records will be properly kept and tracked by the hospital. For the Doctors and Nurses: The medical personnel can be at ease regarding their scheduling and monitoring work. The application will determine the possible schedules of the medical personnel and set them in a more orderly way. For the Administration Staff: The management can now provide the most extensive and out most care when it comes to patient care and hospital administration by using the proposed system. They’re workload will be lessen and process will be more efficiently and timely manage.

Objectives The study aims to help St. Mattheus Medical Hospital, Inc. in

administering and managing their entire hospital’s processes for them to have the outmost service when it comes to patient care.
