The tasks involved in insinuating computer-based technology into the practice of medicine have proved for a variety of reasons considerably more difficult than was first assumed. Clearly, though, certain signs of progress are at hand, and these are explored. The computer is increasingly being used in data handling and automation tasks related to routine activities of health care. Gradually, as we learn how to control costs and to adapt the hardware and software systems to the more complicated and subtle medial care environments, their utility will expand. The state-of-the-art of the utilization of computer technology in medical services is reviewed.
