Abstract:


This paper describes the detail of an Automatic Health Screening System, which has been designed and implemented with PC connected to campus network, IC card reader and special interfaces for physical measuring devices such as height meter, weight meter, blood pressure monitor and so on. Major characteristics of our screening system are using IC card for user identification, interfacing several kinds of physical measuring devices and transferring measured data with ID-label into the health management database of Health Center in our university. Human errors and incorrect identification can be reduced by means of automatic identification with IC card. Speedup of health screening can be realized through special interface between physical measuring devices and computers. And after accumulating student's health data (a kind of Personal Health Record), efficient retrieval of measured data in such database can be performed with Web-DB system and distributed campuses network environment. With our automatic health screening system, almost students can easily participate in university-level health screening during Routine Physical Examination and reliable measurement of physical/medical data can be also performed in a relatively short period.
