Health Records Management System Model for Public Health Centres in Uganda

Hudson Nandere, Francis Lowu


Uganda’s public health centers have no reliable and unified source from which the medical records of patients can be obtained when needed. As a result, many medical workers gamble with medical decisions to give treatment to patients especially in case of an emergence. In spite of the fact that there exists several models/frameworks related to healthcare records, they do not show detailed individual patient care processes to capture all the required records. In addition, some models do not fit in Uganda’s situation due to her limitation in technology distribution and use. Therefore, this paper presents a reliable and accurate model to curb this challenge. We conducted Semi-structured interviews at two health centers. A total of twenty five (25) respondents participated in a bid to investigate the parameters required to capture the medical records of patients. We present the context diagram, a detailed design of a model for online health records management system and use clustered column charts, pie chart and clustered bar chart to examine the themes used.
