Improvement of Workflows in Health Screening For Employees by Making Use of Existing Systems and FileMaker Pro
Pp. 122-135 (14)
Shunji Wakamiya and Kazunobu Yamauchi
Here, we report a new approach to the systematization of health screening for
employees at a hospital that involves developing a new system requiring little capital
investment. A new system was developed with FileMaker Pro using existing order entry
and radiological health screening systems. The effectiveness of this new system was
examined by comparing the implementation efficiency of health screening for
employees before and after its introduction, and by comparison with another such
system currently in place at other medical institutions with regard to efficiency.
Although the new system has been in place for more than three years, no problems have
yet been encountered. This new system is very useful in this hospital and may also be
useful for institutions where it is difficult to introduce expensive new systems for
systematic health screening because of problems regarding capital management.
