  • Publication number: 20030204420
    Abstract: A healthcare database management offline backup and synchronization system having an active database for storing active records and an archive database for storing inactive records. The databases are coupled by a communication link and the system is able to transfer and store records that have become inactive from the active database to the archive database. The database records are archived and purged based on predefined rules. The system allows continuous access to a local medical depot computer database on a network even when the network link is severed. The system updates local and central computer databases regularly, while the link is active and synchronizes database records after computer communications are restored.
