PLATFORMS: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, downloads personnel and payroll information daily from two different mainframes into an MS Access database on their HP-UX server. To query and report the data, they use IQ/Objects from IQ Software on Windows 95, NT and 3.1 workstations.

BACKGROUND: The HRSA directs national health programs which improve the health of the nation by assuring quality health care to underserved, vulnerable and special-need populations. It also promotes appropriate health profession workforce capacity and practice, particularly in primary care and public health. Under HRSA's direction, a nationwide network of 643 community and migrant health centers and 144 primary care programs for the homeless and residents of public housing serve 8.1 million Americans each year.
