Dear hospital authority
This is a student study group from Baptist University taking a General Education course for undergraduates in which students investigate various government policies and projects. Our team is doing the project related to the health management function in e-Health application.
For the function, health management, in e-Health, it can only monitor users’ blood pressure and blood glucose by manual input data. If e-Health can own more data, input blood pressure/glucose automatically may be available.
1.How do the public hospital and clinics keep the patients’ blood pressure and glucose records?
2.Are these records saved in a computer system?
3.Have these records been shared in e-Health?
Thanks in advance for your assistance
