Authors: Yeboah, Paul Kwame
Issue Date: 25-Aug-2008
Series/Report no.: 4965;
Abstract: The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has a drug list with predetermined maximum price of the drugs for accredited providers of Pharmaceutical Services. These accredited Pharmacy shops encounter difficulties as regards dispensing drugs to the clients of the scheme as it is done manually. Again the processing of claims is also very cumbersome and at a cost to the service providers. Therefore, the need to design software to eliminate the deficiencies in the existing system. The main result for the thesis is that we used Visual Basic and SQL Sever to design Pharmacy Management Software (Pharmas) for NHIS to make potential service providers readily apply for accreditation, generate all required reports, monitor inventory levels and finances, speed up the processing of claims, facilitate speedy dispensing of drugs to the clients, monitor events and assess the profitability of the rvices being rendered, and to provide comprehensive and up-to-date reports for effective and timely decision-making.
