Most studies have tried to explain the relationships between firm performance, competitive advantage and investments made in information systems. Literature on information systems offers useful insights on the relationship competitive strategy and information systems; however, it is still not clear how information systems contribute to firm performance and competitive advantage (Gottschalk 2007). This dissertation will examine how, from a comparative and interpretive perspective, how IS contributes to the specific responses and competitive actions of the firm. Additionally, it looks at how the resulting impacts, affects the performance of the firm. This study suggests that the explanation as to how information systems contribute to the performance and competitive advantage of the firm may lie within the specific responses, and competitive actions that the firm participates in or the role information systems play in the competitive dynamics of the firm (Eisenhardt 2004).
Kenya and most African countries have one thing in common; they all have a large health provision gap, which is growing each year. This provision gap is prevalent mostly in the urban areas. This arises due to rural-urban migration since young men, and women move to urban areas in search of employment.
[...] All these phases are cascaded so that second phase is started as and when a defined set of goals is achieved for first phase. The system design documents will be used, the work will be divided in modules, and coding will start. The following tools will be used for coding: PHP Server Scripting Language MySQL Database Management System Apache Web Server Net beans 7.1 Editor Adobe Creative Suite During system development functional units will first be developed. These units will then be integrated to come up with the new system. [...]

[...] This will also allow them to prescribe the correct drugs to customers and prescribe the correct dosage.

Clients or customers will also benefit from SMS prompts reminding them on the recommended times of taking their drugs and for refills whenever their dosage is over. [...]
[...] PROJECT PLAN The project plan establishes a foundation for execution of the project successfully and completion on time. This project will employ a very structured approach to software development, the Waterfall Methodology. An initial meeting with the client will take place to define and document the system requirements in detail prior to beginning the computer-programming phase of this project. This ensures that there will be no delays or unexpected expenses once programming has begun. In "The Waterfall" approach, the whole process of software development is divided into separate phases.

[...] These branches aim at meeting the goals, and mission of the company. All operations are regulated and controlled by the headquarters in Nairobi. It aims at providing quality, readily available medical drugs to its client when needed and whenever needed.
