The researchers conducted this study with the main purpose of helping the residents of the municipality to expedite the process of obtaining free medicine. In the current setup, an individual who needs to avail of free medicine from the barangay or municipal health center personally visits the place to request maintenance medicine. This motivated the researchers to make a research study focusing on converting the manual requisition system to something that people can access quickly and comfortably without necessarily going out of their households, especially during these challenging times – the pandemic. The researchers called it a “Medicine Management System”. The researchers aimed to speed up the requisition of medicine using this online system. The patients or qualified recipients need not consume time lining up to request medicine from the municipal health center. This system can be accessed over the internet anytime and anywhere. Users must register and upload a legit doctor’s prescription. Researchers have created this system using HTML for the system interface, XAMPP for maintaining database records, and PHP for other system functionalities.
