Executive Summary
This document is a Software Requirements Specification (SRS) for the Hospital Patient Management System (HPMS). It describes the functions, goals and tasks that the system can perform. Software Team Development Inc. (STD) will use this document to describe the scope of the project and to plan for the system¶s design and eventual implementation. This document forms the basis for the contract between the hospital and Software Team Development Inc. (STD). The document lists the following features as the high-level requirements that the Hospital Patient Management System will satisfy:
y y y y y y

Work Scheduling ± assigning nurses to doctors and doctors to patients Admissions - Admitting patients, assigning the patients to appropriate wards Patient Care - Monitoring patients while they are in the hospital Surgery Management - Planning and organizing the work that surgeons and nurses perform in the operating rooms Ward Management - Planning and coordinating the management of wards and rooms Waiting list: Monitoring to see if there are any patients waiting for available beds, assigning them to doctors and beds once these become available

The document also presents a number of requirements that can be classified into two categories: functional and non-functional requirements. Non-functional requirements can be used to improve the functioning of the computer system, but not the management of the hospital as a whole. For these requirements, Software Team Development recommends that the Hospital management identify a set of experts from their computer department and their legal department to formally accept the requirements. The primary areas of concern are performance, security and userinterface. Functional requirements, on the other hand, are requirements directly related to the hospital management. Software Team Development Inc. (STD) also recommends that the hospital management identify a set of experts in the different domains to examine and formally accept these requirements.

Introduction 1. the following: administrative staff. 1. and to assign doctors to patients in designated wards as need arises. Please note that only the requirements that appear in this document or a future revision. They should not consider any requirements statements. doctors.

The intended audience includes all stakeholders in the potential system. Nurses who are in direct contact with the patients . Hospital Patient Management System Software Requirements Specification 1. nurses. The hospital management and its team members should use this document and its revisions as the primary means to communicate confirmed requirements to the development team. but are not necessarily limited to.1 Purpose The purpose of this document is to describe all the requirements for the Hospital Patient Management System (HPMS). The development team expects many face-to-face conversations that will undoubtedly be about requirements and ideas for requirements. m. These include. written or verbal as valid until they appear in this document or its revision.m. on weekdays. and 4 p. The system will be used to allocate beds to patients on a priority basis.2 Scope The proposed software product is the Hospital Patient Management System (HPMS). however. Developers should consult this document and its revisions as the only source of requirements for the project.We would be grateful if you accept this document as the beginning of the process for approving the requirements and launching the design phase of the project. surgeons and developers. Your prompt response will be highly appreciated. Doctors will also use the system to keep track of the patients assigned to them.

A general picture of the system and the relationship between various stakeholders in the hospital is shown in Picture 2. 2. The detail structure of this document is organized as follows: Section 2 of this document provides an overview of the business domain that the proposed Hospital Patient Management System (HPMS) will support. It includes the results of both business analysis and systems analysis efforts. non-functional requirements and business rules and constraints.1 Product Perspective This Hospital Patient Management System is a self-contained system that manages activities of the hospital as bed assignment. General Description 2. general constraints. . This model demonstrates the development team's understanding of the business domain and serves to maximize the team's ability to build a system that truly does support the business.1.5 Overview This Software Requirements Specification (SRS) is the requirements work product that formally specifies Hospital Patient Management System (HPMS).4 References No formal documents have been referenced in this document. The objective of this document therefore is to formally describe the system¶s high level requirements including functional requirements. user characteristics. analyzed and refined them. Various techniques were used to elicit the requirements and we have identified your needs. and any assumptions for this system. Section 3 presents the detail requirements. Various stakeholders are involved in the hospital system. which comprise the domain model. 1. operations scheduling. Picture 1 shows an overview of the Hospital Patient Management System and the relationships between requirements. personnel management and administrative issues. These include a general description of the product.

Patient check out. The patient¶s information such as date of birth. If he is. . Report Generation: The system generates reports on the following information: patients. Otherwise a new Personal Health Number is given to this patient. the patient is put on a waiting list until a bed becomes available. the front-desk staff checks to see if the patient is already registered with the hospital. There are two possible circumstances: a) If there is a bed then the patient will be sent to the bed to wait for the doctor to come.2 Product Functions The system functions can be described as follows: Registration: When a patient is admitted. address and telephone number is also entered into computer system. If a patient checks out.2. the administrative staff shall delete his PHN from the system and the just evacuated bed is included in available-beds list. It prints out all the information on who has used which bed. bed availability and staff schedules after every six hours. Consultation: The patient goes to consultation-desk to explain his/her condition so that the consulting nurse can determine what kind of ward and bed should be assigned to him/her. b) If there is no bed. when and the doctor that is taking care of a given patient as well as expected medical expenses. his/her Personal Health Number (PHN) is entered into the computer.

Administrators: They all have post-secondary education relating to general business administration practices. It uses a Graphical User Interface (GUI). They are responsible for all of the scheduling and updating day/night employee shifts. doctors. Nurses in wards will use the HPMS to check their patient list. otherwise putting patients on the waiting list. Every staff has some basic computer training. The system is also designed to be user-friendly. Given the condition that not all the users are computer-literate. Doctors: All doctors have a medical degree. Consulting nurses to whom patients give short descriptions of their conditions are also responsible for assigning patients to appropriate wards if the beds are available. notify administrator or nurse when an event occurs). The administrators.g. Some have further specialized training and are computer literate. nurses and front-desk staff will be the main users. Every administrator has basic computer training. Some nurses are computer literate. .2. Front-desk staff: They all have general reception and secretarial duties. Doctors will use the HPMS to check their patient¶s list.
