Other benefits are:Provision of facility for handling text electronically using powerful and sophisticated word processors to produce elegant and error free documents;In addition to storing the data, direct data capture was implemented. The systematic approaches used during each phase of the software development provide a clear insight that would be of immense help to anyone carrying out research works in this area.


Chapter One


Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

A database is an organized collection of data. The data are typically organized to model relevant aspects of reality in a way that supports processes requiring this information. For example, modeling the availability of rooms in hotels in a way that supports finding a hotel with vacancies.

Database management systems (DBMS) are specially designed software applications that interact with the user, other applications, and the database itself to capture and analyze data. A general-purpose DBMS is a software system designed to allow the definition, creation, querying, update, and administration of databases. Well-known Database management include MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, SAP HANA, dBASE, FoxPro, IBM DB2, LibreOffice Base and FileMaker Pro. A database is not generally portable across different Database management, but different Database management can interoperate by using standards such as SQL and ODBC or JDBC to allow a single application to work with more than one database.

There is a need to improve the mode of doing things in the government of a nation through the organization of a standard error free and fully monitored database so that the keeping of data in every sector and arms of the government will be easier. The mode of keeping files and folders in shelves is now getting uglier and outdated and should be replaced by the modern system which will involve only few computers and its operators and can handle almost everything in the state, with less effort and complete accuracy.

The issue of medical care is planned centrally by every government, and is aimed at every rightful citizen; most especially the old aged people who need constant care and medical treatment.


1.2 Statement of the Problem

Calculating a budget to meet the citizens need is highly cumbersome, approximation and forecasting to meet the need of citizens has done a lot of harm and usually causes inadequacies in the distribution of basic services such as medical care and many more in Rivers state, Nigeria. The major problem of this study is the inadequate supply of free medical care to the old age people who are above 60 years in rivers state, this people are those who really need to be cared for unlike the youths who are still agile and still strong to take care of themselves.


1.3 Objectives of the Study

The aim of this project is to develop a database for indigenes of rivers state that are above 60 years of age which will in turn help the government to conduct a free, adequate and sumptuous medical care for them.

  1. To replace the current inefficient manual system which include forecasting and approximation.
  2. To ensure credibility in free medical service for the old age through adequate database management system in the state.
  3. To help the rivers state government provide a free medical services for the people within the age of 60 and above through an error free database.

1.4 Scope of the Study

The research work is designed to enable rivers state government to use electronic device to capture information of the people between the age of 60 years and above. The design will cover some security issues like authenticating the nationality of the people through integrating the national ID database to the medical registration process.


1.5 Limitations

During the design of this project work, much finance was required and owing to the financial meltdown globally, the research was limited by finance and hence concentrated on the available materials within the locality.


1.6 Significance of the Study

In view of the rapid development of computer technology in virtually all fields of operation and its use in relation to information management, it has become important to look into the development of an ICT assisted database to enable rivers state government to achieve the following:

  1. Conduct free and adequate medical care service safely.
  2. Safeguard data and information in the system.
  3. Reduced workload in the process of budget making.
  4. Keep accurate record of the old age indigenes.
  5. Reaching different kind of people with their respective needs after budgeting.
  6. Eliminate fraudulent activities in the government services.

5.0 Recommendation, Summary and Conclusions

5.1 Recommendation

It suffices to say that for any meaningful computer based information management to be integrated into any organization, proper training and orientation has to be given to both medical staff and management. Proper training should be given to the data entry medical staff on how to handle the computer hardware especially during backup processes. In particular electronic storage media are usually sensitive to change in temperature or pressure and as such data, can be lost very easily. The medical staff should also be briefed on the need and advantage of the current system and how it will equally assist them in their various field of work.

They should also be informed of the cost of maintaining this new system so that they will handle it with all carefulness. Training materials should not be presented in an informal way but with procedures like policies and form etc, they should be circulated to the personnel. This will at the end, generate the medical staff appreciation and needed interest to operate the system.


5.2 Summary

At the end of this project work, I was able to design and develop software that can successfully handle an ICT assisted database for budgeting free medical care for indigenes of rivers state within the age of sixty years and above.

This work also will serve as an aid for people who wish to research more on this topic. Other benefits are:

  1. Provision of facility for handling text electronically using powerful and sophisticated word processors to produce elegant and error free documents.
  2. In addition to storing the data, direct data capture was implemented

The systematic approaches used during each phase of the software development provide a clear insight that would be of immense help to anyone carrying out research works in this area.


5.3 Conclusions

The development ICT assisted database for budgeting free medical care for indigenes of rivers state within the age of sixty years and above involved many phases. The approach used is a top-down one concentrating on what first, then how and moving to successive levels of details.

The first phase started with a detailed study of the problems and prospects of conducting free medical care for people between the age of sixty and above, in Rivers state Nigeria. In the course of this study, many problems were discovered to have hindered the effectiveness of the existing manual system. These problems, information needs, and activities were documented and later used as the basis for system design, which immediately followed the first phase.

The design phase was concerned primarily with the specification of the system elements in a manner that best met the voter’s registration need. During this phase, strict adherence was made on proven software engineering principles and practices. To implement this design, a computer program was then written and tested.

It is hoped that effective implementation of this software product would eliminate many problems discovered during systems investigation.
