Abstract

Using the general-purpose database system SIR (Scientific Information Retrieval), the authors have established a database of key variables of their patient population with myocardial infarction. Their objectives are to provide information for: 1) research (what factors influence outcome? ), 2) teaching (hyposthesis testing, gaining additional clinical experience), 3) clinical decision making (what has happened to patients like this in the past? ), and 4) cost effectiveness (does this test really influence therapy/prognosis? ). The database incorporates demographic, clinical, thallium scintigraphic, EKG, stress, Holter, catheterization, complication, surgical, follow-up, and cost data. The authors plan to expand the system to include their entire heart disease patient population and integrate data entry with routine operations. Since computer personnel are not required to maintain the system, the overall costs are reasonable.
