Abstract

The authors describe the development of a collaborative information management system among a set of related hospital services. By integrating stand-alone microcomputers using a microcomputer as a passive file server in a distributive network, this system provides an efficient means of meeting the data needs of both small, specialized hospital services and larger, parent departments. Advantages of this design strategy over local area network and mainframe applications are discussed.
