Minicomputer systems have been designed for researchers who have no prior computer experience and, therefore, require no computer training, that is, programing knowledge. Such systems allow immediate access to the data, their retrieval, reduction, and analysis, and the retention of direct control over the data base by the researcher. In addition, CLINFO offers a wide range of calculations and statistical procedures. The three-dimensional, time-oriented data-base format of CLINFO allows for a longitudinal study of a particular variable, and its repeated measure over time in the same patient. This system has been adapted for use in the consultation-liaison setting to provide pedagogic, research, and administrative functions from a field-tested data base.
