Abstract:

The transition from the present health care system to the new generation is reviewed. It summarizes the features of the first hospital in the new generation, the prototype hospital which will serve as a testing ground both for experimental verification of the merit of concepts proposed in this study and for concepts which need further development. In both connections it will be necessary to gather much data not now available in order to have a solid basis for analyzing operations in the prototype hospital this matter is considered at some length. Finally, the needs for an R and D program both within and outside the prototype hospital are presented. In the course of the analyses reported in the appendices, various R and D needs are identified, and these are summarized here.
