We described the development of an automated system to perform writing of prescriptions and associated advice. A prototype computer program has been in operation in a dermatologist's office for three years. All prescriptions are routinely generated using the system. The program, originally developed for a multi-user computer system, now operates in a(More)
An experimental telephone-based input-output system, using low-cost audio response equipment, was implemented on a medium-sized real-time computer. This system enables update of audio vocabulary files from a remote telephone terminal, which is a major feature simplifying program and data base modification. Speech signals are processed with an(More)
Microprocessors and microcomputers are assuming an increasingly important role in clinical and biomedical research. They are applied to the development of new devices for monitoring patients, replacing lost physiologic or sensory function, or performing therapeutic procedures. In research laboratories, microprocessors help to automate instrumentation for(More)
