DAMS—Software Package to Support the Daily Activities of a Hospital Ward
A structured system analysis was applied to study the daily activities of a hospital ward. On the basis of the results obtained, the DAMS software package was developed. DAMS supports: (a) reception of a patient into a ward (by recording the patient data in the database); (b) recording of the services given to a patient in the course of diagnostic/therapeutic treatment; and (c) transfer and/or release of a patient.
