Example text

It provides additional background needed to understand many of the subsequent chapters in this book. 2 The Use of Computers in Biomedicine Biomedical applications of computers is a phrase that evokes different images depending on the nature of one’s involvement in the field. To a hospital administrator, it might suggest the maintenance of medical records using computers; to a decision scientist, it might mean the assistance of computers in disease diagnosis; to a basic scientist, it might mean the use of computers for maintaining and retrieving gene-sequencing information.

In the case of new fields of endeavor or branches of science, they are important both in designating the field and in defining or restricting its contents. The most distinctive feature of the modern computer is the generality of its application. The nearly unlimited range of computer uses complicates the business of naming the field. As a result, the nature of computer science is perhaps better illustrated by examples than by attempts at formal definition. Much of this book presents examples that do just this.

H. Shortliffe and M. S. 1. Inputs to the medical record. The traditional paper medical record is created by a variety of organizational processes that capture varying types of information (notes regarding direct encounters between health professionals and patients, laboratory or radiologic results, reports of telephone calls or prescriptions, and data obtained directly from patients). The record thus becomes a merged collection of such data, generally organized in chronological order. 2). 3). Implementing electronic records is inherently a systems-integration task; it is not possible to buy a medical record system for a complex organization as an off-the-shelf product.
