Abstract:

The planning document describes a method by which the Integrated Medical Information System could evolve. The program is delineated into six categories patient care facilities regional inter-hospital activities central inter-regional activities research and education aspects special projects automated Armed Forces Entrance and Examination Stations AFEES induction centers. The first four categories are recommended to evolve sequentially whereas the special projects can be handled independently, and later be included as their development matures. The last category, automated AFEES, was included to imply an inseparable relationship between the initial medical record and the subsequent records generated during active duty however, the automated AFEES is covered in more depth in other documentation.
