Abstract

A computer program was developed for the IBM personal computer to be used for in vitro fertilization and gamete intrafallopian transfer clinics. This program, written in BASIC, allows input, editing, updating, sorting, and printing of patient data. Statistical functions permit summation of patient data based on various combinations of user-defined treatment cycles, diagnoses, and protocols, thus making possible comparison of pregnancy and other patient data between and among various treatment groups and diagnoses. The statistical information can be continually updated and revised when new data become available on patients (such as confirmation of pregnancy by ultrasound or live births) and at the end of each cycle. The formats used are useful in assimilating individual clinic data for various surveys and other reporting requirements. The program can be easily modified by anyone with minimal training in the BASIC programming language.
