  1. In the hospital environment, a lot of letters must be written. I'm looking for a way to standardize all letters I'm making. To do so, I would like to make a MS Office Word wizard, which just asks me all relevant things (e.g., salutation, patient name and birth date), lets me select all things in clinical examination that are deviant from a list ..., and then merges everything into a standardized document, which would be a bit easier than making a template.

    Does anyone know how I can do this?

      There is a whole vertical IT industry dealing with adressing what you wrote plus much more. There are specialized genre of software dealing with medical needs alone, those include everything from ticketing, registering a patient, printing stuff, keeping dynamic databases accesable for different pieces of software and a lot more - everything that needs to be done to fulfill any medical environment. Its a competive market where everything that needs to be provided has been provided, I would suggest you look into talking to your hospital IT guy...I know he presumably might not be too hot as IT guys tend to be not too interesting but hey, you gotta deal with it :P

      You can use vbscript for that. I dunno why you would though since as koti says there is plenty of software available to do so. Google it and see if you can find a software that suits, if not ask your it guy or somebody here could type it up I'm sure.
