Patient Information System with BMI and Diet Counseling in PHP and MySQL
The project entitled Patient Information System with BMI and Diet Counseling is an online platform that provides the health personnel and patients a way to access health related records by using a computer, smartphone and internet. The system was developed using PHP, MySQL and Bootstrap and it undergoes a series of stages wherein researchers/developers carefully planned out everything starting from data gathering, systems design, up to the actual coding of the project. After the system has done, it needs to be tested and evaluated by IT experts and rated the project using the software quality model. The results of the evaluation was rated Good which means that the project has still more room for improvements but all requirements were met. The necessary revisions were made and then it was presented to the clients/end-users. The client was impressed with the result of the project and requested the researchers to implement the project as soon as possible.
Our subject study uses manual process of record keeping such as a handwritten document, keeping records inside the drawer that sometimes tends to lose, unsecured storage of all data and information dissemination about the health status is also problematic.
The efficient way to solve those problems is to implement and design a sustainable information system that organizes the records in a form of database.
Studies on Web Based Patient Support System for Health Monitoring and Quality of Life
According to Gayathri V Panicker and et.al (2014) Web-based Patient Support Systems (WPSS) are an emerging multidisciplinary research area in which one studies the support of human activities with the web as the common platform, medium and interface. One of the goals of WPSS research is to extend the human physical limitation of information processing. The availability, accessibility and flexibility of information as well as the tools to access this information lead to a vast amount of opportunities. It also examines how applications and adaptations of existing methodologies on the web platform benefit our decisionmaking and other various activities. This study proposes a web-based database system of patients’ information repository for effective and timely access to information when and where it is needed. The design uses the three-tier web model architecture as its underlying technology and presents an architectural design for a centralized information database system, which will save time in accessing patients’ health information and hence prompt healthcare delivery will be achieved for the health industries.(www.isaet.org)
BMI CALCULATOR & WEIGHT LOSS TRACKER
According to Livescience (2015), Body mass index, or BMI, is a way to estimate whether a person is at a healthy weight for his or her height. Although the measure isn’t a perfect indicator of a person’s overall health, it’s an easy way for most people to determine whether they are underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese (www.livescience.com).
Significance of Study
This capstone project will benefit the following:
Health personnel. This will provide health personnel easy access to information they need.
Patient. They will be able to access their records online. The system will help them to monitor their weight, body mass index and help them to be healthy and physically fit. This project introduces the required food based on their health condition and ethical concerns for the health of such person.
Researchers. This will teach them to value time, patience, hard works, and cooperation.
Future Researchers. This will serve as a guide or reference in their future studies on the subject matter. This will also help them to improve the proposed system.

PHP – is a web scripting language. This means PHP code can be inserted into the HTML of a Web page. When a PHP page is accessed, the PHP code is read or “parsed” by the server the page resides on.(techterms.com)
HTML or Hyper Text Markup Language is the language used to create webpages. “Hypertext” refers to the hyperlinks that an HTML page may contain. “Markup language” refers to the way tags are used to define the page layout and elements within the page. (techterms.com)
Database – We use a database in our system for its purpose of storing our gathered data, and to make them easier to update and archive.
MySQL – is an open source relational database management system. It is based on the structure query language (SQL), which is used for adding, removing, and modifying information in the database. (techterms.com)
WAMP- Stands for “Windows, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.” WAMP is a variation of LAMP for Windows systems and is often installed as a software bundle (Apache, MySQL, and PHP). It is often used for web development and internal testing, but may also be used to serve live websites.
