As a standard practice, whenever a patient visits a health facility for medical treatment, one of the first activities to be carried out on a patient is to take measurements. The measurements that are taken from the patient include,:- Height, Weight, Blood Pressure, Temperature, Head Circumference, Respiration, Pulse, RBS, MUAC and oxygen circulation among others. The height and weight measurements are used to calculate the Body Mass Index (BMI) of the patient being worked on.
The new helecare design allows several measurements to be taken whenever necessary. It also allows quick and faster navigation from one set of measurements to another.
The paper like design makes the usability of helecare very easy to use for nurses, clinicians, doctors and other medical personnel whose training and experience is based on the traditional paper records. it has been discovered that medical personnel prefer paper like platforms record patient diagnostic information
