In the last two decades many document management systems have evolved and have been deployed for use in business areas such as marketing, production, sales, shipping, banking, education, etc. The demand for electronic document management system has continued to rise with new application areas discovered from day to day. This paper is the first of a two-part study that dwells on the conceptualization, development and deployment of an online documentation system for trade facilitation applications. This paper demonstrates how an organization can build a cost-effective and efficient electronic document management system using open source like MySQL and PHP. The domain of application stressed in this paper is X-ray Cargo Scanning operations as conducted by Government agencies especially the Customs and Excise or their appointees during imports, exports inspection and cargo clearance at the ports. In this paper, the authors investigated various operations that preceed clearance of shipments at ports in Lagos Nigeria. The role of Cargo scanners, image acquisition and subsequent analysis as well as challenges were buttressed. Following the investigation, analysis and design of a solution were done. This paper presents the results of the analysis as well as the system specifications which are considered vital for the implementation of a realtime integrated solution. The proposed system would provide a platform that enhances productivity in a risk management and scanning service organization especially in managing and exchanging large volumes of scanner-generated documentation across a network as well as with other agencies.

Health Informatics System for Screening Arboviral Infections in Adults

By Chinecherem Umezuruike Wilson Nwankwo Samuel O. Okolie Adewale O. Adebayo Joshua V. Jonah Habiba Ngugi

Health Informatics (HI) has played vital roles in the management of several diseases especially in the tropics. It has revolutionized the mainstream healthcare and healthcare delivery system. This paper applies the principle of Health Informatics to addressing the detection and management of arboviruses particularly Zika and Dengue viruses around which the aetiology of Zika Virus Disease and Dengue fever revolves. In this paper, the object-oriented approach was employed to study the fundamental procedures in the detection and management of arboviral infections. The study culminated into modelling of knowledge-based prototype system for screening patients in incidence areas. Existing knowledge on the management of arbovirus infections was complemented with purposive sampling of two specialist infectious diseases facilities in Nigeria. The health informatics prototype is christened NCliniSoft Diagnostic ZikaSol and is composed of five components validated through expert-driven differential diagnostic procedures. The prototype was evaluated to test for usability, diagnostic consistency, user acceptance and satisfaction. The prototype performs a differential screening between Dengue fever and Zika Virus disease using the Bayesian probabilities complemented by situational constructs. The result of each screening process is an automated diagnostic report that shows the status of the patient. Computed result showed high level of efficiency and acceptability.
