SOFTWARE FOR MEDICAL PRACTICES

Choosing or upgrading the software to run an office practice is a critical decision for a physician, especially if compatibility with other software is required. To prepare its graduates for their own practices, the Medical Sciences Library of Texas A&M University developed two bibliographies using the BUYER'S GUIDE TO MICRO SOFTWARE (SOFT). To their Search of the Month bibliographies, "Software in Medical Practice" and "Software in Veterinary Medicine," the library added references on software selection from MEDLINE. The search strategy is included so users can locate new software as it is added to SOFT.

The BUYER'S GUIDE covers medical office practice particularly well with over 80 records. SOFT lists office automation software for specialties such as psychiatry and dentistry, and even the allied health professions of chiropractic and nutrition. The database uses 16 medical descriptors, which are listed in the DIALOG and BRS database guides.

This record from SOFT appeared in Texas A&M's Search of the Month:
