Abstract : The objective of this study has been to explore the range of feasible designs for an occupational health data system which the study group deems most appropriate to meet the perceived needs of the U.S. Air force Occupational Health Program. The main issue is that of centralization vs. decentralization. Recommendations are made for three basic configurations, and 5-year costs of storing and retrieving the base-level data are estimated. A distributed system is found to be the most desirable.
