The manual file-based system being used. it proves hard for the hospital, to keep track of the number of patients treated by the hospital, to speed up records storage. retrieval of records and to follow the trend of its patient’s illnesses among other things. These limitations are caused by the large amount of paperwork involved, as a result of the large number of patients and the filing system used which involves physical files and files cabinets. The above problems led to the need for further studies of the system to come up with a solution to the problem.
