Abstract : This study suggests that the most requested medical computer systems within the Air Force medical community are those that support test results, medical records, and patient scheduling. Although those results change when the data is viewed by different medical specialties, they still remain in very high demand. Overall, there is no correlation between military grade and computer support or military grade and computer experience. There is, however, a correlation between medical speciality and computer support and computer experience. However, the correlation appears driven by computer education. This implies that the educating staff in computer related subjects can play a major role in gaining support for medical computer applications.
