One major goal of a clinical research project was to follow a large group of survivors of myocardial infarction over a seven-year period in order to obtain information about patient survival and/or circumstances of death. A computerized data-management system was used to assist in the procurement of consistent, complete data. The authors succeeded in completing follow-up on 98. 4% of our population in this program. The experience suggests that follow-up can be computer-directed, and a strategy for this approach is presented.
