HIERARCHICAL COMPUTER NETWORK: AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH TO CLINICAL LABORATORY COMPUTERIZATION IN A LARGE HOSPITAL.

Abstract

Most currently installed proprietary or ″turnkey″ systems are often hardware/software-constrained and based on outmoded design concepts which seriously limit the use of the laboratory computer system as an effective patient care, research, and management tool. These shortcomings are particularly serious in the large university teaching hospital. Recent improvements in the price/performance ratio for computer hardware, the availability of specialized high-level applications-oriented languages, and advances in data communications have permitted development of powerful computer networks which are economically feasible in the large hospital setting. An operational three-tiered hierarchical network for clinical laboratory data processing is described.
