Full Article

ABSTRACT– The aim of this paper is to design and implement a web-based application for managing an Electronic Pharmacy (EPS). The proposed system aims to speed up the process of dispensing drugs to patients in a manner that ensures pharmacological safety and high efficiency. It also provides the time and effort exerted by the staff and ensures the accuracy of the patient’s internal medical disbursement as well as the control of the disbursed quantities. Besides, the proposed system enables the doctor to see the full medical record of the patient and the types and amounts of medicines that have been described, discharged, and the location of issue. The doctor can also re-prescribe drugs, whether one drug or a group of drugs from the previous record of the patient, which speeds up the work of the doctor and reduce the waiting time of the patient. Moreover, the electronic pharmacy system supports the safety and security of the drug description process by alerting the doctor to any drug interventions such as drug reactions, and permissible doses. It also enables the doctor to document any information about the disease’s susceptibility to any medicine or food, which helps to increase the medical care provided to the patient. The proposed system also facilitates the doctor’s choice of drugs by using the scientific or commercial name from the stock items in the system only. The proposed system also provides a precise control of the medical stock, as it is not allowed to request medicines outside the approved list or exceed the quantities specified for each department. Moreover, the proposed system includes two main parts, namely pharmacy and health for mothers and children. And the person must first register in the system through fill an application containing information about the subscriber such as name, phone number, email address, etc. After that, the user can enter the system and complete the process of obtaining the drug or information about it before buying. Finally, the proposed system helps customers to dispense medicines quickly and accurately without having to go to the pharmacy site.
