Abstract : The Tri-Service Medical Information System (TRIMIS) Program Office (TPO) has installed computerized clinical laboratory systems (Tri-Service Laboratory (TRILAB) systems) at Oakland Naval Regional Medical Center (Oakland NRMC), Wright Patterson Medical Center and Regional Hospital (Wright Patterson), and Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center (Eisenhower). The costs and benefits of the system were evaluated at Oakland NRMC. Evaluations at the other two sites were conducted on a smaller scale and consisted primarily of surveys of attitudes of the users of clinical laboratory services and of laboratory personnel. Information from evaluations at all three sites will be used in decision-making regarding the future use of automation in clinical laboratories in other medical treatment facilities.
