Recent research states that using new and emerging technologies in the areas of telecommunications are widely used in healthcare sector. In this research we will design and implement the Electornic Patient Record Management System (EPRMS). It is a centralized database contains the in-patient record which contains the patient personal info, department lies-in, physician, tours, ,treatment and lab results. Since the patient enters the hospital the workflow starts as the reception user creates new record by entering the personal info and sends the record to assigned department; at this stage the nurse starts update the record by entering the physician comments, required treatment, and sends lab test when it is required. The procedure continues as long as the patient still in the hospital. At last when the patient recovered or died the International Classsification of Diseases (ICD) inserted to the record and out or died date. In addition there are many supported tables that can be updated manually through independent pages by IT administrator. Also the system consists of different users and different user permissions. In addition there are advance search that can help to make statistical reports and researches for the physicians. This system is considered time and cost effective to healthcare
