PMID:  7410165     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We have developed a method of computerization to collect intraocular lens research data in a private office practice. More than 30 separate variables are now being collected on all patients, and over 1300 cases have been studied. Information is transcribed from patient records to data sheets and typed directly into an office Teletype 43 terminal, which is connected by an acoustic coupler to an IBM 370-148 computer. The data are stored in a systems library which is equipped with an editing mode for rapid updating and addition of data. It also allows jobs to be submitted and returned through the remote terminal. The system is compatible with a statistical package which allows a wide range of statistical analyses.
