Computerized Hearing-Screening data base system

ABK-Technologies successfully implemented a program system of general database for newborn children, who have hearing defects, and watching over their entire continuing treatment process.

ABK-Technologies successfully implemented a program system of general database for newborn children, who have hearing defects, and watching over their entire continuing treatment process.

This program also data base of a large number of risk factors existing prior to childbirth as well as during infancy.

The program includes following types of data:

- Data from maternity wards;

- Birth certificate data;

- Hearing drop risks factors (prenatal and postnatal);

- The results of examination;

- Data about continuing children treatment.

The program has English and Ukrainian user interface. The Program system generates several types of reports in HTML format. These reports can be accessed through the Internet. The Program system also provides strong data security access to personal data and authorized access to reports. The Program system has several possibilities for data updating (direct Internet updates, transfer of e-mail system and manual data input). The Program system has ability to generate statistical analysis of cause-effect relationships.

The Program system consists of two parts:

1) Local application and

2) Server part.

Local Application:

Installation on local computers in maternity and pediatric wards of medical institutions, dealing with hearing-screening of newborn babies and infants, with consequent thorough examination of those who have some hearing defects.

Data input of newborn babies with hearing defects:

- Sending the information to the server;

- Server response;

- Data security;

- Authorization of data users.

Server Part:

Located on the Programmatic complex server, provides information storage from local appliques, account forming in different sections for random period of time.

- It is situated at the Central computer of the Program System.

- Web user interface operates with server part via Internet.

- Data gathering from local applications.

- To export data to the local applications.

- Report Generation Module.

- Authorization and data access for server users.

The system of general database of Hearing-Screening provides:

- Easiness of data input and editing.

- Protection from unauthorized access to data base.

- Clear graphic presentation of the data with detailed elaboration possibilities.

- This Program covers the entire process of examinations and treatment of the child.

The main concept: every newborn child undergoes OAE (otoacoustics emission) examination, which allows early to detect hearing defects. This is the first step. The second step - those who have hearing defects, undergoes detailed examination in specialized centre in order to confirm diagnosis. Thereafter they get medical treatment according to their condition (hearing prosthesis, cochlear implantation) and also pedagogical help (speech therapy).

The used programming languages:

- C#;

- XML;

- SQL.

The used technologies:

- .NET;

- OOP;

- Storage procedures.
