Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A great many clinics are interested in using software programs in daily practice. We report on the construction of a time oriented medical record unit (TOMRU). It runs on MS-DOS personal computers. TOMRU handles the follow-up data of ambulatory patients. Of the possible database customizations allowed by TOMRU, the cardiology patient database (TOMRU/C) and hypertensive patient database (TOMRU/H) were developed and are described here. Customizing TOMRU should in any case be left to an expert user, in charge of database management. The clinical information to be included in the customizations was obtained by discussing the needs of and obtaining the consensus of clinical practitioners. TOMRU/C was handed over to some hundreds of clinical centres during the computerized itinerant courses held to train users.
