Abstract : A medical center specializing in chiropractic care is burdened with the enormous task of managing numerous patient's records, preparing error free billing statements, and writing official business/medical. This task requires increased attention of staff personnel. The burden of paper file management could be lessened through automation of record keeping, while increasing accuracy, efficiency, and effectiveness. Valuable time for the providers and secretary could be saved through elimination of excessive paperwork which they are required to prepare. Based on the staff requirements, this thesis designs and implements a database management system. The primary objective is to automate the current manual system to allow providers to generate official medical reports. In addition to, this system will also store, sort, and compare data relevant to all patients while minimizing the need to maintain hard copy files. The Chiro Pro 97 (CP97) Database system is designed using Microsoft Access 97.
