Abstract : *Information processing, *Minicomputers, Computer programming, FORTRAN, Algorithms, Medical services, Feasibility studiesInterdata 80 minicomputers, CDC 6500 computers, CDC 6600 computers, MIMS(Medical Information Management System), Medical information management system, File structures, Computer storage managementThe report examines the feasibility of implementing large information management system on mini-computers. The Medical Information Management System and the Interdata 80 mini-computer were selected as being representative systems. The FORTRAN programs currently being used in MIMS are viewed in light of the limitations of the interdata machine, and it is discovered that it will be impossible to make them work without large and time-consuming alterations. It is concluded that it is possible to implement MIMS on the new machine, but it will be more practical to do so by writing new programs, rather than making do with the old. (Author)
