In this paper, the design of an application that allows the integrated management of a burn unit is reported. Starting with the problems associated with the current procedures, technical solutions are found from the requirements demanded by the specialists. The major design considerations and implementation details are outlined. Special attention is devoted to the prescription of drugs and inventory control, as well as reducing the time that healthcare professionals spend in administrative tasks. The developed implementation is an example of a low-cost system suitable for adoption in a wide range of units in a hospital organization.
