Introduction of the Study entitled Maternal Records Management System
Table of Contents
The capstone project, “Maternal Records Management System” is a system that automates the process of recording and keeping maternal records. The said project will allow maternity clinics to track and monitor their patients’ records from pregnancy to their baby’s immunization records.
Maternal record is significant for every pregnant woman for it contains orderly and accurate information of pregnancy. The record helps in detecting and monitoring risk and complications during pregnancy. Conventionally, records of a pregnant woman are written in a paper and are kept in a cabinet or any physical storage. The manual process of maternal records is prone to human error such as mistakes in writing the accurate details. When records of maternity are kept manually, difficulties would highly occur during retrieval of the documents. The manual method is not ideal in managing maternal records for problems may arise during the pregnancy due to the inefficiency of keeping records that may serve as a reference. Pregnant woman and maternity clinic is in need of an effective system to streamline the process of managing maternal records.
The researchers of the study proposed a Maternal Records Management System to resolve the aforementioned concerns encountered in the manually-aided system of managing records of pregnancy. The proposed system will automate the process of recording details of pregnancy and storing maternal records. By integrating the system, maternity clinics will be able to accurately records important information about the pregnancy of their client. The system will help ensure pregnant woman that they are efficiently monitored. Maternal Records Management System is an effective and reliable tool in managing records of pregnant woman.
