Patient Management System

This is a type of clinical decision support system that is used in medical institutions to keep records of patients’ information. It is a software that is used to acquire the patient’s medical history from another medical device to diagnose or treat the patient. Some medical institutions have directly attached their patient management software to their different medical systems or devices to ensure that the patient management software or system directly contributes to the treatment of the patients. The system also keeps the history of the client’s bill settling habits. This helps identify the patients who tend to fail to fully settle their debts once they have fully recovered. The next time such customers visit the hospital again, then the system automatically brings up their bill settlement from the past and any arrears. This helps the firm to prevent retreatment of patients who tend to fail to pay their dues (Berner, 2007). The ability of the system to bring up the patient’s medical history also helps medical practitioners easily understand the medical history of their patients and this helps them have a good basis of the patients’ past. Its diagnosis or treatment functions are also helpful to medical practitioners as it replaces their judgment and decision making.  

Alarm and reminder system– this is a system medical practitioner use to enable them to keep track of certain specific patients who need special treatment at a specific time (Sarkar, et al, 2008). The reminder system is cost-effective and ensures that the physicians can deliver the special attention required for those specific individuals to ensure their health condition improves.


Criteria for Determining the Functionality of These Medical Decision Support Systems

  1. Consistency- the use of different clinical decision support systems is more effective than the use of a physician’s judgment in determining the patient’s illness. The patient’s medical record is kept for long and hence, even when a new medical practitioner comes, the use of the clinical decision support systems ensures consistency in the decision made by different practitioners.
  2. Ease of use- these clinical support systems are easy to use especially for personnel with medical knowledge and skills. Further, the system stores all the patient’s information in one center such that it is easy to access the patient’s medical information, personal and financial information together, hence easy to access all this in one instance (Garg, et al, 2005).
  3. Reduced cases of misdiagnoses- since these systems reduce the use of the individual physicians’ judgment; the system is consistent and can rarely report misdiagnoses. This makes clinical decision support systems more useful.
  4. Time- when accessing past information about a customer from the system, all that is needed is to enter the primary information about the patient into the search button on a computer device. This is much easier than when this is kept in physical files which take long to retrieve this information.
  5. Clarity- clinical decision support systems often give an output that is clearer and easier to understand. This makes it easy for both the immediate physicians, the pharmacist and any other person that has a role to play in the treatment process.
