A new data management system for urologic patient was designed by composing revised discharge summary and a computer program. The revised .discharge summary consists of more detailed clinical records and maintenance of clinical records during the follow-up period post discharge. The computer program was written in FoxPro Version 2.0 and the urologic code system was developed by applying some modifications on the international classification of diseases. The present program takes major advantages in easy and errorless entry and retrieval of data. These include pull-down menus using simultaneous input and coding system without any needs of typing the required codes for problem, management, and diagnosis. Data search and case statistics can be easily obtained with any combinations of problem, management, and diagnosis. The authors consider the present system, in which the revised discharge summary and computer program were closely linked, is very useful in patient data management.
