A minicomputer-based data management system for the storage, retrieval, and analysis of cardiovascular clinical and basic research data is described and examples given of its potential utility in clinical arrhythmia research. The system links multiple data bases so that subsetting, statistical analyses and a variety of other data manipulations can be accomplished across data bases. Data additions or refinements can be made without restructuring an entire data base and new questions asked without the need for specific program revisions. The system is user-oriented. All aspects from data formulation through analysis can be accomplished by clinical investigators without computer or mathematical backgrounds.
