Abstract : The document details a study of the Massachusetts General Hospital Utility Multi-Programming System (MUMPS) programming language and DoD Automated Information Systems (AISs) written in MUMPS that support the health business area. MUMPS is an interactive programming language and general purpose database management system. It has been primarily used to develop medical information systems. Implementations of MUMPS are available for mainframes, minicomputers, workstations and personal computers. The strength of the language is in its ability to manipulate and store unstructured textual information. Due to its emphasis on textual data, MUMPS does not support mathematical or scientific functions especially well.
