Abstract : COMPSY is a clinically-oriented computer applications research project which will develop and test concepts for an integrated, Army-wide psychiatric information system. This system will objectify, systematize and make immediately available, data concerning psychiatric casualties from their identification in the field, through their hospital course and treatment, to their reintegration within the military community. Specific clinical applications such as automated psychiatric nursing notes, automated psychological testing procedures, an automated collateral social history, and computer assisted instruction programs will be identified, developed and tested, along with the automation of other significant aspects of clinical and epidemiologic information.
