Authors: Owusu, Daniel Nsafoah
Issue Date: 3-Nov-2016
Abstract: Patient data is the most essential and important information in health care delivery. The collection, storage, management and usage of this data contributes to the successful delivery of health care to every patient. The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital is a tertiary hospital found in the Ashanti Region. This project was conducted to assess the usage of Electronic Health Records of this teaching hospital. To help assess the usage, the writer made use of quantitative research methodology to collect reliable and valid information on the research. Notwithstanding, questionnaire, interview and observational or enquiry research methodologies were employed in gathering relevant information from the research population. Relevant literature on the study were consulted to find out the views of other writers on the study. Tables and charts were used to compare the results. Descriptive and inferential methods were employed to analyze the data by the use of the Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 17.0 (SPSS version 17.0) computer software package. The results indicated that the Electronic Health Record is the best mode of collecting, storing and managing patient data although there are few challenges and improvement that must be addressed.
