ThorSurg - Thoracic surgeons, why write out a patient file when you can just tap through one? Handheld computers have revolutionized the way physicians manage their patient data!
ThorSurg was designed for surgeons, or any health care provider, who treats patients with diseases of the chest. Although the primary focus of the ThorSurg DB is lung and esophageal cancer, patients with benign or other malignancies of the chest can be tracked using this program.
ThorSurg provides busy surgeons with faster more accurate method for entering patient records. The result is an electronic file containing patient information, what was done, where it was done, and the diagnoses for which it was done.
Andy Kiser, MD, intuitively designed the ThorSurg system so that even a beginning Palm user would be proficient at adding new records! One of the unique features to the program are the pre-populated popup menus and linked databases which minimizes the need for graffiti, resulting in a more accurate and quicker means for entering patient records. Patient records can be easily managed using the built-in options for sorting, filtering, and searching.
Along with the ThorSurg application, your software includes a copy of the HanDBase desktop, which is the database engine running ThorSurg. The desktop program offers an easy and efficient means to manage your patient data, such as exporting, printing, archiving, data entry, and more.
