Managing information is not an easy task, especially when that information
is important. One small change - an address, a phone number, a physician - sets off an avalanche of corrections in a mountain
of documents in order to keep records accurate.
This is the beauty of relational databases. A piece of information is kept
in only one place. When it is changed in that one place, it can then be pulled to wherever it is needed. Time is
saved; accuracy is enhanced.
Paper records are "paper"; it is not easy to "back them up" off-site.
I create databases for niche clienteles whose special needs I know well: religious communities and similar
organizations and those which deal with health care.
