Abstract: Most information systems depend on a Database Management System (DBMS) to organise information. Access to such an information system is based on use of a database query language on the part of the user. This poses a skill level problem for medical staff at a hospital. As a result medical staff tend to depend on the database specialists, and programmers for access to information. To eliminate the complexities of a query language and to make a ubiquitous access a web-based information access system has been proposed for the end users. The test prototype is based on the notion of query-by-object. It allows a logical step-wise approach to access information resources. The proposed system allows a medical personnel pose queries at the same level as a trained database query language programmer.

 

Keywords: database query languages; high-level language interfaces; user interface; web-user skills; web-based access; dynamic content; medical information; query-by-object; hospital data; healthcare information; information systems; database management systems; DBMS.
