Article title Software for medical information system for audit and analysis of patients with gastrointestinal bleedings

Abstract (resume)

Introduction. The gastrointestinal bleeding remains still a remarkable interdisciplinary problem. A population-based and cohort research of this pathology can be realized under a qualitative collecting, stocking and processing of data.

Purpose. To develop/implement a hospital-based medical information system for outcome research of patients with gastrointestinal bleedings.

Study Methodology and Results. During development of the system we constructed a local medical information system for audit and analysis of patients with gastrointestinal bleedings using principles of depersonification data collection and a relational database Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition 4.0. According to its functions the outcome reporting is possible by simple lists with bleeding descriptions or by a calculation of surgical activity (mortality and hospital day rates).

Conclusion. The presented medical information system is oriented towards a data analysis for gastrointestinal bleedings in a single-center research and implementation in a specialized medical center.
