Abstract:

The study presents a summary of an extensive literature review on automated multiphasic health testing AMHT, concentrating on physician acceptance of the concept. A history of AMHT, a description of the testing process, and a discussion on evaluating physician acceptance of AMHT are provided. An attempt is made to assess the present level of civilian physician acceptance, based on the literature. Several factors influence physician acceptance are identified and some methods of improving acceptance are proposed. Additionally, the results of a Navy physician opinion survey conducted by the author are given and evaluated in terms of Navy physician acceptance of AMHT and the hypotheses developed from the findings in the literature.
