Designing an electronic medical records system using design patterns


In the recent decades the importance of the information systems (IS) has been steadily growing. Nowadays most of the operations that imply complex manipulations with data and storage of large volumes of data are being automated through the use of various IS. At the heart of all the Medical Information Systems lie Electronical Medical Records (EMR) systems, they store and process data about patients. Developing an efficient EMR system would considerably improve the performance of the physicians' work and free more time for actual patient treatment rather than paperwork. Design Patterns have gained a widespread recognition in object-oriented community. They provided proven solutions to many of the design problems faced by software engineers. This paper is focused on developing a solid analytical base and initial simulator for an efficient Electronic Medical Records Systems using Design Patterns. We have tried to use the Design Patterns and various UML design techniques to propose an easily-extensible and reusable design for the system. This research should serve as a firm step towards the development of complete efficient EMR system.
