CHAPTER I

Introduction
In today’s modern age where computer has become a way of life, it is evident that a majority of the country’s institution still do not adopt the high technology. Particularly in most medical clinic facilities, daily clinic transactions are still done on paper. We all know that modern clinics are now operating a great pace striving to serve as many patients as possible with the best of their abilities. But as the years rolled by, the number of patients has grown and various medical cases arise that the manual method of managing patient’s records.

In this study, we hope to developed a application that will minimize all paper works and manual records keeping, therefore allowing doctors and staff ease in keeping track of patients, reducing patients’ waiting time and increasing the number of patients served a system that is fully automated, user-friendly, time effective and efficient. The project a mainly on generating patient information reports and providing them an efficient way of storing and getting information. The system is a solution for the in accuracies that are currently happening with the use of manual computations, not only for the dental clinic’s bill, but also for the transactions with customer. This system will make use of the efficient task distribution for every employee without hustle not like before when they are using manual processes for resolving the work overload issue. The researchers created patient information management system to solve the problems of the client such as information loss, storage space problems, and security of information, evaluated thoroughly to meet the standards in making such a project and to give the dental clinic an efficient flow, storage and security information through the use of patient information management system on their employees.

Background of the study
Now more than ever, people have become more health conscious and are takingnecessary steps to ensure that they have a sound body and mind that is whyeveryday many people come to clinics or health facility for check-ups and treatments. Amedical clinic is primarily devoted to the diagnosis and care of patients. Basically,patients spend a substantial amount of time in clinics waiting for services to be deliveredby the doctor or health professional. The degree to which the patients are satisfied withthe care received is relative not only to the doctors’ expertise in their field, but also tothe quality of the clinic management. And we all know that as the number of patientscontinually increase, managing a clinic can also become increasingly difficult, especiallyif everything is done manually. The dental practice management system is similar to a dental records management system in terms of functionality and adds the ability to bill patients. It gives the dental clinic the opportunity to offer high and consistent levels of output quality, while improving their productivity through reduction of time consumed and cost. It enables this level of quality by ensuring data integrity and reduces time Conceptual Framework

Input - consists of information about the problems encountered in manual record system Process –The researchers will use the Visual Basic 6.0 Programming Language and Microsoft Access for the database to be able to meet the requirements of the proposed system. Output– it signifies the proposed “Patient Information Management System”.

Statement of the problem
The main problem of the study is the manual system of record keeping and billing records in the clinic. The person tasked usually stores their records through index cards in a filing cabinet which happen to consume time and effort in organizing Specifically, this study aims to answer the following

1. What are the common problems encountered with the existing manualsystem of managing a clinic? 2. What are the possible solutions to the problems encountered with thecurrent system? 3. What is the difference between...
