A Computer-Assisted Patient Record System
A computer-assisted patient record system which holds information about patient and drug factors on over 6000 patients is described. The system has been developed using a CODASYL type database management system and maintained on a medium configuration mini-computer. The principal aim of the system is to improve and facilitate the transfer between doctors of clinically important information about high-risk patients.
