Design and implementation of a computer intelligent pharmaceutical centre system
Abstract The need to develop a system that would improve the management of stocked pharmaceutical items in the pharmacy became beatable due to some setbacks experienced by the current operations of the pharmaceutical establishment. Drug procurement and distribution tracking system is a set of computer programs that obtains the supplies of drugs, distribute the drugs and monitors the inventory control of the drugs. Using the pharmaceutical department of UNTH University teaching hospital as a case study, the department using manual method to operate lacks good storage of information system for drugs. Recording system tends to be complex and the method of tracking expired drugs is poor. The good approach to this problem is to involve the use of a computer by designing the form, using Access in developing the database and C# as the programming language, to enable keeping accurate records of drugs and prevent sales of the expired drug. This guarantees the people’s right to good health care and ensures that drugs received are genuine and safe.
