A data management and analysis system for patient registries and clinical studies
  • Theodore M. Pass


A computer system for the management and analysis of clinical data is described. The system is implemented in the ANSI standard MUMPS language and runs on popular minicomputers. The system is designed to allow clinical invetigators or research assistants to define a data base, enter and edit data, produce patient-specific reports, and perform a variety of analyses on userspecified groups of subjects. Programmer intervention is not required at any stage of the management or analysis process, and on-line documentation provides a friendly environment for inexperienced users.
