Medical treatments are an essential part of our life, but the treatment related
information can be rather complex and hard to follow. The goal of this thesis is the
implementation of a Java based web application, which supports the monitoring of
the medication related information for patients. The information about the medical
treatments shall be provided by an external system.
The related tools and technologies were reviewed along with the legal background of
the particular field. According to the result of the research work, the database
schema was designed and the functionalities of the web application were planned.
Communication played an important role in the planning part and was implemented
by using web service technologies to provide interoperability between the distributed
The users of the application can monitor their current or past treatments, which
contain information from the applied medicine to the doctor who made the diagnosis.
Furthermore the evaluation of the treatment is also possible by saving the level of
effectiveness for the given treatment.
The simulation of the external system was required for the proper testing of the
application, due to its unavailability. An open-source web service testing tool was
used for the simulation, which enabled the testing of different scenarios. Further
development of the application is also possible, and some of the possibilities were
provided in the summary.
