The system was developed to satisfy program objectives in patient management, program planning and evaluation, resource management, federal reporting systems and clinical, epidemiological and health services research. The data collection forms used in the system and the output from the four data display groups-patient profile, resource management, quality of care and epidemiology-are described along with examples of their use.
