The 7th in a series on computers and medicine. Some of the information was gleaned from the 10th Annual Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care held in Washington DC in 1986. Three major sections are presented: understanding the domain of health care information systems; special considerations for health care systems; and methods and tools used in implementing a health care information system.
