AbstractA computerized data base system for managing clinical activity of faculty and residents has been developed and tested in The Department of Anesthesiology, University Medical Center, Tucson, AZ. Using d-Base III+ and an IBM PC AT the system provides the department residents with tabulated data on a monthly and year-to-date basis, which can be easily transposed onto annual clinical activity reports required by The American Board of Anesthesiology. The system maintains a clinical activity history for the faculty, which allows for equitable work scheduling. The system also tabulates anesthesia equipment usage and problems. The system has been in operation since October, 1987 with residents and faculty receiving clinical activity reports on a monthly basis. System operation requires 10 to 12 hours of secretarial time weekly.
