The Japanese adult cardiovascular database(JACVSD)contains details of all adult cardiovascular surgeries performed in Japan. This database has the potential to make data from all of Japan available to the world in the future. However, it is time consuming to enter several items from an individual terminal for all cases;adding further pressure to already busy routine work. In our facilities, an original system using Filemaker Pro has been developed and used since 2004. This system has various functions integrated into it, and currently, the input system of JACVSD has been added. As a result, it becomes possible to automatically enter more than half the data of JACVSD, and excellent results can be reported. Intellectual property rights have been owed by Nihon University since 2007.
