Excerpt of article text...

So far, I have demonstrated how I dealt with four sets of health data from a personal health solution. But what about data on illnesses and injuries? Should I include those as well? In a word—yes.

So for today, in what will be a multi-part article, I shall show how I track and manage disorder data. First, I explain what a health disorder is, what are its many types, what makes those types similar and what makes them unique. Second, I describe the table structures for holding the data.

Next, I show how I designed the entry views that will accept and present disorder data. Finally, I show how I implement the underlying workflow.

The updated demo project FooHealth (Mk7) is available from the magazine's website.

Readers must have a working knowledge of REALbasic, SQLite and object-oriented design.
