Abstract:

The purpose of these condition-action diagrams for the non-computerized Walter Reed Army Medical Center WRAMC Department of Pathology was to depict the flow of documents and specimens, to provide a graphic representation of the major processes in the WRAMC laboratory, to document the type of records being kept, and to indicate the interfaces between this department and other departments particularly Wards and Clinics and the working relationships which existed in the Walter Reed laboratory during the time October 1974 to February 1975. The intent was to provide an understanding as to how the laboratory operated as it did in order to see where automation could help, what problems change would bring, and where computer automation might help the laboratory.
