Efficient delivery of healthcare has become increasingly dependent on a broad range of medical data, which includes different media types. The use of technology in the medical field is rising rap-idly, while the method of storing and visualising medical data has not altered that much, leaving health professionals to deal with fragmented patient data which consumes time and affects decision-making.
This paper shows how health professionals can manage sizable quantities of information and different data types so they can improve medical treatment, patient care, medical diagnosis and the development of future treatment improvements for research purposes.
A ‘work in progress’ project presented here deals with medical data. This paper provides a de-tailed study of the problem of having fragmented medical data, and the proposed solution which is having a medical record and a toolbox/software interface to assist health professionals in storing and visualising data.
