1 What types of information or data would the users of the proposed system like to have compiled. What would this data provide evidence of or answer? Provide specific examples.
In the database schema provided, the main entities included are (1) doctor, (2) medication, (3) patient, (4) insurance, and (5) diagnosis CITATION Bar11 \l 1033 (Bardale, 2011). Mainly, these are chosen in order to cater for an easier access to information relating to the medical history and financial capability of the patient. In the proposed flowchart, the entity for the patient is directly linked with those of diagnosis, medication, and insurance. This is mainly preferred so that healthcare provider could create a personalized allopathic treatment which would not compromise the quality of service, but still be affordable for the patient themselves. Aside from this, the author of this paper also believes that by making these entities easier to access, the physicians and the nurses could provide a care that is “evidenced-based”. Aside from the healthcare providers, another importance of the schema provided is that it could also allow the patient to view data concerning his medication, diagnosis, and the kind of insurance that he/she has. Therefore, this relational model does not only cater for providers but even for patients if they wanted to do so.
2 What kinds of specific reports would the users of the proposed system like to be able to generate.
In using this schema, the users of the proposed system (both providers and patients) would be able to access their information regarding the status of the treatments in different forms. On one hand, the patient could see all his personal information in a tabular form that would consists his diagnosis, the medications that he needs to take, and his insurance status. Particularly, the patient's end would also include specific data such as the price of his medications, the generic name, as well as other alternatives for these generic medicines. On the other hand, on the healthcare provider's end, the physician, nurse, and/or administrator could easily see the diagnosis posted by the primary physicians, the kinds of treatment that were done and needs to be done to the patient, the coverage and other details relating to healthcare insurances, as well as the medication that were prescribed by the doct
