The Hospital Risk Management Information System for the Buddhist Supreme Patriarch Hospital (Vasana Mahathera), Thailand
M.L. Kulthon Kasemsan,
This research aims to develop and improve the information system used for risk management in hospitals. The researcher recognizes common problems in the old system; it is not user-friendly or flexible, and also causes errors in actual uses. For example, no corrections can be made if there are mistakes in the recorded data. The only option is to make a new record, which causes data redundancy and overestimation of the risks. Additionally, publishing reports is ineffective; it cannot satisfy the needs of its users, and it is difficult to make adjustments to the old system. Therefore, this research will provide a possible solution to improve the information system used for risk management in hospitals through the use of web applications. The development will be done using the data from the old system, adjusted according to the standard specified by the Healthcare Accreditation Institute (Public Organization). It will create a new standard for other healthcare institutes to follow. The system will allow users to publish reports with multiple templates; it is suitable for risk management in hospitals to provide data for planning and decision making, to make adjustments in risk management strategy effectively, and to promptly find solutions should any trouble arises. The system will be developed using Yii2 Framework on MVC architecture since it allows for further improvements easier. It will also utilize database in the form of MySQL, which is most widely used among healthcare institutes.
