Senior Project - infoSTAT


Web-Based Interface to a Heterogeneous Hospital Information System

Senior Project: 1999-2000
Erik Colnick, Suzette Lyons, Scott Posch and Jasmit Singh

Longmont United Hospital (LUH) had a large amount of information in a variety of systems. This included information on financial aspects of the hospital, patient data, and information on employee training. The problem was that while this information could be very useful to LUH employees in performing their duties, it was often very difficult for these employees to access.

The goal of this project was to develop the framework for a web-based system that periodically (e.g. nightly) extracts this information from the various existing systems and provides a user interface for selecting and viewing the data both as textual reports and as bar, line, and pie charts. The system was implemented for use within the Financial Department for access to various financial reports, but was designed to be flexible enough to apply to departments throughout LUH. The project was largely implemented in Perl and HTML, using KavaChart for graph generation.
