The aim of this project was to computerize patients’ health records system. Kampala International University Clinic was used as a case study. The existing system was found to be completely manual faced with numerous problems like duplication, loss of records, huge storage space and time consuming. An investigation was carried out to establish how the existing system functions and what its problems were. To help in investigation, the interviews, observation and questionnaires were used in data collection. In designing the system, the study defines the architecture, components, modules, interfaces, and data for a system to satisfy specified requirements. One could see it as the application of systems theory to product development. The system design was done in three phases, conceptual, logical and physical design. A computerized was designed using tools like ERDs, DFDs, MySQL and PHP embedded in HTML. The system is fast, convenient in terms of storage, makes it easy to share information and it is user friendly.Computerization of patients’ health records system is hence recommended for use in all clinics in Uganda.
