Abstract:

A prototype medical monitoring system designed to collect and store dispensary data has been developed and is undergoing testing. Although this system is designed to function as one of several components of an overall occupational health information system, it can be used an independent system for medical surveillance. The patient encounter form developed for this program is designed to obtain the information necessary to complete routine reports required from dispensaries including the Medical Services and Outpatient Morbidity Report and the Report of Occupational Health Services. In addition, automation of medical data helps to insure the efficient perforance of routine functions such as the scheduling of physical examinations. Finally, when combined with the other components of the occupational health monitoring system, the contaminants an individual is exposed to can be accessed and used to aid in diagnosis.
