Database design

What is Database design?

Database design meaning Information management system usually set up to store various data elements in logical groupings known as records or tables (e.g., storing all patient demographics together in one record and case-specific information in another record). The patient records must be linked to their case records using a key variable that is common to both types of records and unique to the patient record (e.g., the NAACCR patient ID number).
