Abstract:

A systems analysis was performed to enable the design and implementation of a dental epidemiology information system at the Great Lakes dental facilities. Appropriate information was obtained from Dental Corps command and staff personnel, consolidated and analyzed. Systems requirements were specified and a functional design was developed. This system design included a remote terminal network at the recruit inprocessing facility and sufficient stand-alone microcomputers to provide follow-up dental treatment information. A preliminary economic analysis indicated a break even point for this approach would occur within one year of implementation.
