DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A HOSPITAL BIOMETRIC DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Keywords:Hospital Biometric, Data Management System, Biometric Feature
The need to drastically reduce the delay faced by patients before they receive treatment in the University Clinic and the need to reduce the occurrence of medical mistakes due to patient’s misidentification led to this work which aimed at developing a hospital biometric data management system.
Java was the programming language of choice and Netbeans was the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) used to design the Graphical User Interphase (GUI) and write codes. For the backend database, MySQL was used for demonstration purposes. The analytical diagrams were drawn using VioletUMLEdit. The Griaule Fingerprint Software Development Kit (SDK) was used to implement the fingerprint capture, enrollment, identification and verification features of the software.
The tests and results obtained showed that with this hospital management system, the time taken to retrieve patient’s record has been reduced from several minutes to less than five seconds thereby eliminating the delay experienced by patients during search of their records. The problem of medical mistakes due to patient’s misidentification was also addressed by the biometric feature of the management system.
