Abstract : The major problem areas for initiating, maintaining and evaluating a medical diagnostic system (MDS) are presented. In particular, the decision-making activities are modeled along with the problems of paramedic utilization, cost comparisons, and a staff planning model for the medic-paramedic-computer team. Methodical data collection procedures are required if these modeling efforts are to be validated and implemented. (Author)
