A test oriented data base management system has been developed for use by the Section of Cardiology at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago. Data are currently being entered into the data base from cardiac catheterization hemodynamic and oxygen studies, cardiac angiography studies, implanted pacemaker follow-ups, dynamic electrocardiographic recording analysis and cardiac diagnostic code specification. Future plans call for addition of echocardiography, treadmill, intensive care census and selected ECG analyses information. Data from each test are stored within its own data base. However, a unified retrieval language has been developed to allow data from any of these tests to be retrieved based on selection criteria from its own data base or from any other test data base in the management system.
