Abstract : The Navy Computer-Assisted Medical Diagnosis (NCAMD) system is designed to assist Independent Duty Corpsmen (IDCs) in rendering a medical diagnosis. The NCAMD system was written using Microsoft FoxPro, Version 2.0, database management system. For each encounter the signs, symptoms, and laboratory information collected can be gathered on data entry forms created for NCAMD or entered directly (real time) into the system. A Chronological Record of Medical Care (SF600) can be generated automatically to document the encounter. The NCAMD system User's Guide was written to familiarize the IDCs with the NCAMD software. The keyboard and mouse commands necessary to run the various options are explained in conjunction with the associated screens.
