In this paper we describe, as an example, how we obtained the information needed to evaluate a newly introduced protocol for ordering X-rays for ankle trauma patients.
Extensive use was made of available data and facilities of the hospital information system (HIS).
Procedures for collecting the required additional data, which were not recorded in the HIS but were needed to evaluate the protocol, were embedded in the current medical and administrative routine of the emergency room.
These additional data were also stored in the HIS.
Periodically all data were downloaded to a personal computer to analyse the impact of using the protocol on quality of care and costs.
