    Abstract

    In a small practice it is possible to develop a computer system for repeat prescriptions that requires little extra work and has other applications that may improve the quality of care of chronic conditions and promote the education of the general practitioner and his trainees. A program that can maintain a patient register, check milage and dispensing figures, prepare call up lists for inoculations, and search specific age groups for particular conditions, as well as provide a repeat prescription function, is described.
