My dad is a cardiac surgeon in Malaysia and has a small clinic connected with that. He's thinking of computerising his office to help store his patient files and I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the best way to do that. He probably sees 3-4 patients a week and he's not amazing with computer so a nice simple solution would be best. I was thinking a computer for him and his secretary with a NAS with 2 1TB hard drives in RAID 1. He can write notes on normal paper and they can be scanned and stored on the NAS. The problem is how to index everything... Ideally, the files should be searchable by several criteria such as date, name, DoB, hospital number, clinic number etc. Does anyone know how this can be done? What I was thinking of was saving the files according to clinic number and maintain an exel file cross referencing all the other data but there must be a more elegant solution than that... Any advice would be much appreciated!
