Abstract : The functional design of a system to automatically capture combat casualty care data was defined. A prototype system was developed using a graphics tablet interfaced with an IBM PC/AT compatible computer. Software written in Turbo Pascal allowed users to associate areas selected from a form with appropriate semantic information. This capability was implemented using quadcodes which provided the degree of efficiency needed for timely data processing. Keywords: Medical services; Data processing; Military medicine; Medical computer applications; Computer programs; Casualty care; Automated input; Computer-aided design.
