Abstract : With the increasing emphasis on automation and shortage of skilled personnel within the medical service of the United States Air Force, the necessity for developing a mechanized system to assist in hospital and medical management became apparent. As Project Engineer for developing a medical information system by computer operation, the author has researched literature, visited hospitals with computers, talked with computer hardware salesmen, and attended meetings and seminars on computer usage. This paper is an attempt to familiarize others interested in computer application for hospitals and the medical fields with my research. (Author)
