The main purpose of this project is to design and implement a Hospital Management and Diagnostic system. In the early 60’s we compared computer to a growing technology. Today we can now see its effect in our day to day activities and in life generally. Some exploitation in various fields of life and now available especially in medical science in the developed countries. In the health care management system, due to the fact that there is deficiency in taking care of the sick, lack of proper record keeping, the possibility of nurses, midwives or doctors to forget or overlook valuable things because of some reasons and since human brain can only accommodate limited information within a life. The project will develop and design a package that will help and assist in health care management. That is all the operation needed in the system as in registration of new patient, retrieving of data, processing and close monitoring of patients and data storage. Method of generating the report is carefully analyzed in details. This new computerized method will reduce the problems and bottleneck nurses faced in the manual method thereby making it easier, timely and more reliable and efficient in workflow. I used Microsoft visual Basic 6.0 and Microsoft Access point in achieving this work.

Summary, Recommendation and Conclusion
1.0 Background of study
Computer is garbage in garbage out device, that accepts input (data) process them to produce the anticipated output. It could be seen as an electronic device which is capable of receiving and processing data automatically which is later turned out as information according to pre-determined instruction or program. It is a device that works under certain stored software by the manufacturer and automatically accepting, processing storing and retrieving data that are needed for a particular purpose. The processing may involve retrieving records, storing, arithmetic calculation and other kinds of manipulations. Computer can display information electronically, print it or produce it in order form. It is also a device or machine that under program control performs arithmetic and logical operations without human intervention.
It is well known fact that medical facilities in technologically advanced countries of the world are far better than what they are in the countries that are less developed. This is so, because computer has contributed immensely to the advancement of medical practice in these countries.
Computer assisting in hospital management and diagnostic system. Computers have been used in the medical field for over many years and most hospital in our society today are computerized. Computer and medicine are like life wire of a good health environment.
