Abstract : This paper is divided into two main parts, the historical part and a section on current trends and applications. The historical section looks at the period of development between 1964 and 1974. It presents commonly accepted notions of that time regarding definitions objections, functional requirements, and reasons for successes or failures in implementing of computer systems for hospital information systems. The second part of the paper looks at current trends and current applications in some representative areas. The paper is by no means comprehensive or completely representative in this subject, but rather attempts to provide an idea of what is happening in the medical field and where we can expect developments to lead.
