Abstract

 

This paper describes the crucial issues in patient transferring between hospitals (from Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to ICU) and possibility of using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to change the process of patient transfer, enabling a faster and more reliable transferring mechanism. With the proposed system, ‘Sathkaara’, a better health care service is expected in the Sri Lankan government health sector.
