The DataStat Outpatient Pharmacy System is designed to improve and expand pharmacy operations by performing such functions as the printing of labels and reports, patient profiling, interaction monitoring, and inventory control. In December of 1977, the Naval Regional Medical Center at Charleston, S.C., became the first U.S. military hospital to implement DataStat. This paper presents the results of interviews conducted in March 1978 with the pharmacy staff at NRMC Charleston to obtain their subjective assessments of the performance and impacts to date of the automated outpatient system.
