From micro to mainframe. A practical approach to perinatal data processing.
A new, practical approach to perinatal data processing for a large obstetric population is described. This was done with a microcomputer for data entry and a mainframe computer for data reduction. The Screen Oriented Data Access (SODA) program was used to generate the data entry form and to input data into the Apple II Plus computer. Data were stored on diskettes and transmitted through a modern and telephone line to the IBM 370/168 computer. The Statistical Analysis System (SAS) program was used for statistical analyses and report generations. This approach was found to be most practical, flexible, and economical.
