Electronic medical records or hospital information system (HIS) is designed to collect individual patients’ information in the clinic. Otherwise conducting medical research, requires the collection of information, and the current HIS is not considered for this. Also, there is no such mechanism to be easily summarized the patient's history in the list form.

In Nippon Steel Hirohata hospital, we build and run the subsystem powered by Filemaker, the commercial database software, by the method of end user computing for 18 years.

In the subsystem, we create the ledger of hospitalization, surgical register, and list of malignant tumor patients, and any medical information. Also this supports to make the hospital certificates and other documentation. In addition, we are making the integrated clinical history system on those systems. This information is referred by all devices on the network in our hospital, which helps with the effective use of information shared by each department.

Keywords: Filemaker, EUC, certification, cancer registration, patient history, management, connection with HIS, admission record, discharge summary, cancer treatment, regimen, drug information, ICD-10.
