Abstract : COMPSY is a pilot project investigating the possible uses of the digital computer as an adjunctive tool in treating psychiatric patients and the feasibility of developing an integrated, Army-wide psychiatric information system. This system will objectify, systematize and make immediately available data concerning psychiatric patients from their identification in the field, through their hospital course and treatment, to their reintegration within the military community. It is a subspecialty portion of a larger, totally automated medical information system for Army soldiers and their dependents. (Author)
