Version 1.0 of the CPHI Scoring Program software is currently available for a cost of $30 (US).
The CPHI Scoring Program is a 32-bit Microsoft Windows® application that can run on
most systems with Microsoft Windows version 95/98 or later. The software needs at
least 2 MB of hard disk space for the program and associated files. In order to run
the CPHI Scoring Program you must have the 32-Bit Borland Database Engine (BDE) installed
on your computer. If it is not already installed, the install program for the scoring
program will install the BDE and configure it for you.
The software is a Windows version of the original program (release 2.0), written in
dBase IV (Demorest & Erdman, 1994a). CPHI data are easily entered and stored in the
system database. A profile of the subject's scores may be printed from the data entry
screen. Previously entered records may be edited or deleted and an individual's item
responses for any of the 22 scales may be viewed and/or printed. The program allows
the user to search and load previously entered records for viewing or printing. Records
are stored as 'dbf' files and may be easily imported into statistical programs for
The CPHI© and the accompanying CPHI Manual: A Guide for Clinical Use (Erdman and Demorest,
1994b) may be purchased from:
