It is probably necessary to link the client list with the remedies 
database. Payroll would need integration if a client is associated with 
an individual practitioner, and remuneration (payroll) is based on the 
client history and remedies sold.

Integrated software for medical practitioners will do a better job than 
two or three individual applications, even if each individual 
application is better suited to its niche.
