    Here's the problem to solve: I'm a health care practitioner. I frequently consult with patients via telephone. After I'm done, I need to enter information (patient name, DOB, supplements ordered, etc.) and send it to my assistant, who works virtually. I want to create fields with checkboxes or blanks that I can simply annotate quickly, so I don't have to type the same information again over and over.

    We tried creating a fillable PDF, but we're having trouble making that play nice across platforms (I'm on a Mac, she's on PC).

    Something like FileMaker would probably work, but I don't want to spend $600 (for her and me) just for this one simple purpose.

    Google forms or Wufoo aren't sophisticated enough.

    Wondering if there are any other options?

    NeoOffice from OpenOffice has a database creator similar to Access, would allow you to create a DB that you could host, and potentially allow your assistant to access via VPN, Remote Desktop, etc.

    Thanks, but my assistant is (unfortunately) on Windoze.
