2. Key Features:
2.1. Common screens
There are a number of screens and features widely used in the Administration module.
To start with, nearly all of the screens require a patient MRN (Central Medical Record
Number) which is linked to the Patient MRN Search. In most of the main screens, once
you type in the patient MRN, the Checklist pops up if there are any notes added inform
the users before proceeding with the tasks. SMS is not only sent as a fixed message when
scheduling an appointment but also sent in free text to the patients or their relatives
immediately or at any scheduled time by the users. Scanned documents and Medical
Records are now uploaded or typed into the system through the viewer, convenient and
highly accessible to related caregivers and employees.
2.1.1. Patient MRN Search
BESTCare 2.0A is an all-in-one system of electronic medical record, order communication
system, and other hospital information system. It’s workflow begins by selecting a patient
to work on and retrieving all information of the patient.
The patient’s MRN can be searched through many different values as follows.

Patient ID: The patient’s KSA ID(for Saudi Arabians), Iqama ID and Passport ID(for
11
HIS BESTCare Project 2.0A
User Manual [Administration]
foreigners)

Name & Sex & Age: The patient’s name is the only mandatory field and the others
are to narrow down the search results. The name can be searched in a sequence
such as the last name, first name, father’s name, grandfather’s name. For example,
When searching for a Mr. ‘Ghaziri Ahmed Mohammed Abdullah’ (last, first, father’s,
grandfather’s name), you have to search the name as ‘Ghaziri’, or ‘Ghaziri Ahmed’, or
‘Ghaziri Ahmed Mohammed’ or ‘Ghaziri Ahmed Mohammed Abdullah’. The patient
won’t be searched if you search for ‘Ahmed Mohammed’ or ‘Mohammed Abdullah’.
Since too many names pop up if not searched under this alignment, make sure you
type in the last name first and then the first name, father’s name and the grandfather’s
name when searching a patient. When using “~”, it enables the soundex function and
searches for patients with similar names. When using “-”, it searches for names that
includes letters in between. For example ‘Mohammed’ can be searched by ‘M-h-d’.
The age can be searched by a certain range as well.

Telephone Number: Any added phone number, whether it is cellphone or office
phone, can be searched through this condition.

Family ID: The Family ID is the head of family’s Patient ID. It can be the KSA ID (for
Saudi Arabians), Iqama ID and Passport ID (for foreigners).

U & D: Unknown and Disaster patients. When they are generated, they can be
searched under this condition. No value needs to be typed in to search them. Their
names are saved as Unknown or Disaster and have a sequence number.

Badge Number: The hospital employee’s badge number is searched from the HR
database.

2.4. Scheduling
Scheduling is mainly divided into two categories. The template and time slot maintenance
of the physicians and the patient appointments.


Slot Types: For scheduling, there are 5 types of slots.

Total: Clinics that receive any patients regardless of their slot types use the total
slot. Therefore, it cannot be applied with the other slots at the same time.

First Visit (FV): First Visit slot includes new patients (New to hospital patients) and
First Visit patients (New to department. When the previous refer ended, they will be
considered as first visit when they come again with a new referral)

Follow Up (FU): Follow ups are treatments after the First Visit.

Walk In (WI): Patients who come to the hospital without any appointments and want
to have consultation in the same day.

Emergency Patient (EP): Patients who came through the Emergency department
and was asked to schedule an appointment in the ACC.

But as for statistics, you will still have to choose first visit or follow up when
scheduling an appointment so that you know even though a patient is WI or EP,
whether they are NP, FV, or FU.)
Change Reasons: It is a field that is on the right side
of each time slot. It includes all the unavailable
reasons such as Vacation or Academic conference.
But it is also used to block the slots on purpose so
that the end users cannot schedule an appointment
to that time slot. Some slots can be overridden by
users with authority but some slots cannot be
overridden at all.
Instead, the users with authority will be able to delete
the change reason, make an appointment and block
it with the same change reason again.
So for those change reasons, temporarily undoing
the change reason will solve the problem.

2.4.1. Template and Slot Maintenance
The templates are the patterns for a physician’s clinic. If the physician has two different
clinics, the physician will have different patterns set up for each clinic. Templates are
created with one or a combination of weekly patterns and are applied into the calendar.
These templates are to be made and managed by one person because if they are
managed by each department, it is highly possible that the patterns from different
departments might overlap. Once the patterns are created by the pattern creator, they are
to be applied by each department.

aziz’s Peds Neurology clinic from the Clinic Code Management and then you
