Paper Abstract

Data base technology has been introduced into the field of medical data processing. The functions of database management systems (DBMS) have several relationships to the requirements for storage, retrieval, and update of data in health-related studies. These relationships are discussed and demonstrated in the data management of an epidemiological study - the Munich Blood Pressure Study (MBS) where the commercially available DBMS ADABAS is used. The scope of data items range from personal information over the medical history and laboratory results to data of an electro-cardiogram and its automatic analysis.
