The purpose of this study was to develop a database system for visiting nurses working in a community health center. The final goal of the system is for it to be used as a nationwide database-collecting tool over the Internet for community health services. Three unique systems were developed and trialed. The first system focused on the data warehousing technology as a research centered system for a theory based database construction. The second system was a local system, which has already been utilized in a proactive health center, and had the system interface revised according to the newly developed standardized framework of the service. The third system was part of the integrated community health information system, which had the goal of general dissemination. It is clear that these systems reflect the unique characteristics and goals of the test sites, and should be supported for the Systems Life Cycle to survive. The authors plan to move to the next stage of developing an integrated nationwide health information system for community health services.
