Computer technology has had a major impact on virtually all segments of society and industry. The medical profession, however, is an exception. No major changes in the behavior of the practicing doctor have resulted from the past 15 years of computer research in medicine. Although there are isolated examples where computer technology has been used in the laboratory and in accounting, computer technology has not become an integral, cost-effective part of today's medicine.
