Medical data processing in the United States

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


In order to employ advanced communication's concepts in the various areas discussed in this presentation, the scope and nature of each task must be carefully defined. Choice and implementation of a computer system must be preceded by a thorough analysis of the present manual operation. The administrator and his colleagues must familiarize themselves with basic data processing principles. Without sufficient knowledge of how a computer system works, they are poorly equipped to compare available alternatives. Other important considerations include realistic cost assessments and the quality of the hospital's in-house educational program. The dedication of the medical staff and the cooperation of the administration are essential.
