Abstract:

A comprehensive, automated Navy Mental Health Information System NAMHIS has been developed at the Naval Health Research Center for use in Navy outpatient mental health clinics. NAMHIS provides three major services. First, it is a medical recordkeeping system. Standardized clinical and administrative information from individual patientclinician encounters are collected and stored in an automated medical record format. Easy access to these records is facilitated and timely reports of patientclinician consultations are generated. Second, it serves as a management information system with monthly administrative reports and a readily available database to answer management related queries, and third, it provides a scientific database to support research queries and major investigative projects.
