  • Due to the development of communications technology, it is now possible to be offered online from remote places. This kind of communications technology can be applied to the medical field. The medical treatment appointments in hospitals can be its typical example. But still, in most of hospitals, patient or guardian have to physically visit or call to the hospital to set up an appointment for the medical treatment. In addition, they have to wait in line in order to pay after receiving the medical treatment. The patient or guardian, after paying, receive a paper prescription and they go to a nearby pharmacy to take the medicines. They must wait in line again there in order to receive the medicine from the pharmacy. In this paper, we would like to suggest a smart medical treatment system in order to solve the problems discussed above. With this proposed system, the user will be able to make an appointment, make payments and receive medication quickly and easily without spending extra time. Also, there will be no need for paper prescriptions with this system. We discuss about the security of medical information for this proposed smart medical treatment system proposed.

  • This study analyzed the effect of the number of deaths of circulatory system diseases according to 12-day short-term exposure of carbon monoxide from January 2010 to December 2018, and predicted the future treatment cost of circulatory system diseases according to increased carbon monoxide concentration. Data were extracted from Air Korea of Korea Environment Corporation and Korea Statistical Office, and analyzed using Poisson regression analysis and ARIMA intervention model. For statistical processing, SPSS Ver. 21.0 program was used. The results of the study are as follows. First, as a result of analyzing the relationship between the impact of short-term carbon monoxide exposure on death of circulatory system diseases from the day to the previous 11 days, it was found that the previous 11 days had the highest impact. Second, with the increase in carbon monoxide concentration, the future circulatory system disease treatment cost was estimated at 10,123 billion won in 2019, higher than the observed value of 9,443 billion won at the end of December 2018. In addition, when summarized by month, it can be seen that the cost of treatment for circulatory diseases increases from January to December, reflecting seasonal fluctuations. Through such research, the future for a healthy life for all citizens can be realized by distributing various devices and equipment utilizing IoT to preemptively respond to the increase in air pollutants such as carbon monoxide.

  • The objective of this study was to predict the changes in the duration of hospital stay, hospital admission fee, costs of drugs, changes in laboratory cost, material cost, total medical cost, adjusted amount of treatment and the efficacy of obstetrics and gynecology DRG system. The cost of drugs showed the greatest change and was followed by materials for medical examinations and the change in methods of medical examinations. In the analysis of the quantity of medical service the profit of medical examinations were influenced mostly by the duration of hospital stay. The results and data in this study could be used as a basis of future DRG system protocols and will be utilized so that hospitals can build a efficient medical system.

  • Purpose: Process management is the activity which manages all procedure of construction by representing visually interrelation of operation or sequence setting. The purpose of this study was for reducing treatment period and higher efficiency of treatment through application of PERT/CPM (Program Evaluation & Review Technique/Critical Path Method) in dental clinic. Materials and methods: The patients were selected for study who needed more than 2 departments' cooperation for prosthodontic treatment in Wonkwang Dental University Hospital. Control group is composed of the patient's whole treatment plan, treatment period, numbers of hospital visit, treatment costs, treatment results. On the other hand, experiment group contains the patient's virtual treatment data based on PERT/CPM technique. We applied PERT/CPM in operation analysis. Results: Treatment period, numbers of hospital visit was decreased as 18.1% and 15.3% when we applied operation analysis based on charts. Also treatment cost in experiment group was 0.9% economized compared with control group's treatment cost. Conclusion: Application of PERT/CPM in dental clinic can achieve reliable treatment and reduced treatment period and establish plan of minimum treatment cost.

  • 병원에 진료를 받기 위해 찾아온 환자들은 병원의 복잡한 시스템과 구조 때문에 어려움을 겪는다. 이러한 문제점을 해결하기 위하여 모바일 컴퓨팅을 이용한 다양한 진료 안내 시스템이 제안되었지만, 환자의 상황, 위치 등을 인지하기 위하여 별도의 장치를 사용하기 때문에 초기 구축비용이 많이 들고, 환자의 스케줄을 의료진이 수동으로 설정해야 하는 단점이 있다. 본 논문에서는 이러한 단점을 해결하기 위하여 환자의 진료가 끝난 즉시 의사, 간호사 등의 의료진이 다음 진료를 설정한 후 환자의 스마트폰으로 진료 정보를 제공하는 상황인지 기반 진료안내 시스템을 제안한다. 또한, 환자가 받아야 할 진료의 대기시간을 비교하여 대기시간이 짧은 진료를 추천해주는 진료 순서 추천 시스템을 제안한다. 본 논문에서 제안한 진료 순서 추천 시스템과 기존 방법과의 성능 평가를 통하여 기존 방법보다 제안한 방법이 우수함을 보인다.

  • This study was a descriptive study performed to identify factors affecting medical satisfaction in multicultural members. The survey participants were 301 multicultural members in A city. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Independent t-tests, One-way ANOVA, and Stepwise multiple regression analysis with the SPSS 14.0 program. Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that the predictors of satisfaction among the medical staff were satisfaction with age and health insurance, which accounted for 28% of all variance. Predictors of satisfaction with the medical environment were age and jobs, which accounted for 17% of all variance. Predictors of satisfaction with medical expenses were multicultural form, educational level, and jobs, which accounted for 33% of all variance. These results suggest that we need to develop and implement strategies and programs that can enhance satisfaction with medical use among multicultural members.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to show the differences of medical cost between hospice and non-hospice care for terminally ill patients. This information provides basic data to nationally institutionalize hospice care for decreasing costs and enhancing quality of life for terminally ill patients. Methods: Participants of this study were 114 terminally ill cancer patients who were diagnosed and died with stomach cancer and lung cancer at the K hospital of the C university. The study was a retrospective survey design that analyzed the medical costs for two weeks before they died. The cost analysis was done according to 11 items form the medical cost bill. Results: Patients enrolled in hospice care had significantly lower medical costs (53%) than did non-hospice patients especially in use of TPN, narcotic analgesics, nursing care, radiology tests, and blood tests. Among patients enrolled/admitted in the hospice unit, there was a significant cost difference only in use of analgesics whether the hospice specialized doctor was in charge of care or not. The cost was significantly lower when a hospice specialized doctor was in charge of care although the total medical cost was the same. Conclusion: This study identified lower medical costs for patients cared for in the hospice unit. Thus, we urge institutionalizing hospice care without delay to insure cost benefits as well as quality care.
