Best Tool for Business Requirement Management 

I am a Business Analyst in a Health Care organization. I would like to hear peoples' opinions on which RM tool you are using for business requirement management, or which tool you think is the best RM tool? Currently we use different system/document templates for RM process, lots of manual work to copy and paste, send back and forth, which is very low efficiency. 

Thank you

I find using word tables with paragraphing and other structures to work fine for requirements capturing.  If you have screenshots you can drop them in the document as well, and it makes it easy to snap into a project plan if required.

Re: Best Tool for Business Requirement Management 
I am currently using Borland Calibre V11.3  Its a friendly RM tool and fairly intuitive to learn.  Even comes with its own diagraming feature called Visualise.  I used Rationale Req Pro in the past, it was OK, but not sure what its like now Doors have joined with IBM.
