Inpatient Manager is a database application for hospitalists created by a family practice physician. Inpatient Manager is designed to help teams of physicians manage the sign-in/sign-out process in an organized and efficient way, ultimately improving patient care. It records only the information that is relevant to patient care. Inpatient Manager can create an unlimited number of databases - each with a limit of 32,000 patient records, and each record can accommodate a virtually unlimited amount of text. The application includes a versatile search function and an innovative function for creating customized reports. Databases created with Inpatient Manager are easy to navigate and manage, and individual records are easy to keep. For compatibility with other software, the application includes a function that exports a database to a tab-delimited text file.
