A Web Based Interactive Health Record System (WIHRS) is a digital web-based record of patients presenting in a hospital. The information so generated on patients can then be accessed by medical personnel to provide treatment for them in any health care delivery setting at any location. Analogue ways of record keeping were the traditional way of documenting patients’ information by health information officers. The problems of unavailability of a centralized database system and inability to access patients records and provide prompt treatment to patients at any healthcare centre could be solved by WIHRS. The objective of the paper is to design a WIHRS. The methods included cloud computing model, service model, deployment model and cloud hosting. The web technologies languages such as Hypertext Pre-processor (PHP), Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML), Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) and Ajax were deployed to implement the proposed system. The use of WIHRS improves the standard of healthcare to patients with optimal efficiency.
