Abstract : In recognition of the complexity in the basic operation of hospitals today and the shortage of skilled personnel within the medical services a feasibility study has been initiated for developing a medical information system by computer operation using the systems engineering approach. This report outlines the developmental program for a transactional hospital information system which would include all Air Force medical installations and related medical activities. (Author)
