Towards, Building and Implementing a Digital Healthcare System

Khalid Aldrawiesh

Abstract—Healthcare industry is evolving rapidly, increasing the capability of delivering a high quality of service to the public. The rapid development of information technology (IT) has introduced many valuable directions to medical and healthcare sectors. The emergence of high-speed network communication, mobile technology and digital storage has led to a more accessible and convenient way to obtain medical facilities. It is clear that the involvement of IT in the medical sector will provide many more advantages in the development of the medical sector itself. This paper describes a technological approach to deliver health services online by using a distributed system. To make keeping health records paperless and processing them systematically, the system manages Electronic Health Records (EHR) and provides access for them to a wide variety of users such as patients, doctors, medical officers, researchers and students. The accessibility is achieved by implementing various client technologies such as web, mobile and PC to access the system. Since the EHRs are processed by system components implemented in various environments, standardization of health records is implemented along with a standard communication protocol to communicate between system components. Hence, we have introduced a novel approach to healthcare management in IT, and it is intended to contribute as much as possible to the community who are dedicated to IT in healthcare.
