Introduction

A03 Benefits and drawback for patients and staff of using a system the benefits of my database for my patients is that they can get letters telling of special offers sent to them because dentercall has there information in the database and the patients will be told if there are any offers on the products they like and the security of the databases information will abide by the data protection act and they will also get discounts in the dentists goods in the shop also have staff holidays adjusted so that they can have a break when the dentist is not busy The drawbacks for the patients is that they will get sent lots of junk mail from the dentist and also they got to fill out form and questionnaire to know what people like and don't like also if you change dentist the old dentist still have your information and can still write to you.

I found it difficult in creating the website because it was hard to put hyperlinks in and the changes that I did to the website is that I changed the background so that it is easier to read the text and I changed the look of the title so that it stands out. The problem that I had with the website I that I did not do enough planning You can improve the database performance is to add a autocorrect to some words because it will make it easier to type certain words without having to type it all such as female/male all you have to do is to type in f/m and it will autocorrect it to female/male. I could also use a ready made template witch will make the input of data faster because I wont have to create a template also I could have had validation checks which will check if I have entered the information correctly and also verification checks to make sure that I have entered the information correctly. The modifications to my database and website that I did in A01D to make them more accurate is that I proof read to make sure that the sentences made sense and I had a friend proof read it and I did validation checks which will check that my field names are correct. ...read more.

Conclusion

should have researched more websites to get a better understanding of the layout of a dentist's website and how they presented it. Also I don't think I spent enough time on implementation of the website because I did not no how to use dream weaver so it was to learn it at the same time as creating. Once I created my website pages I made a evaluation and to improve my website I gave it a black background and made the title bolder. I believe that I did not use the right software I n the time I had to create a website because I had to learn how to use the software and also create the website which took a lot of time to correct mistakes that I had made and because f the time I had I think I should have used Microsoft FrontPage because I know how to use it. The next time I create a website I will think more about the layout than I did and to do this I would research more website. Also I would learn ahead of time how to use dream weavers make my website look better and I would spend more time on thinking about what to put into the pages. ...read more.
