The aim of this paper is to present an useful software in medical research. The new concept proposed is “real time biostatistics” and its application in Acute Myeloid Leukemia. For this purpose open source software (wxWidgets, R and SQLLite3) are used. The cases were patients with AML from Hematological Department, County Emergency Clinical Hospital Tirgu Mures. We created a friendly interfaced software that allows appropriate data collection and real time update of statistical parameters as each case is introduced.
The medical importance derives from the possibility to have valid study and to see in each moment a change in the evolution of patients.
Collaboration between specialists (hematologist, PC programmer, biostatistician and methodologist) was really important for accomplishing our goal.
