Can the Present Infrastructure of Medicine Support Radical Change in Premises and Tools?

  • Lawrence L. Weed
Part of the Computers in Health Care book series (HI)


When we look over what has been written here concerning new premises and new tools and their implications at every level of medical education and medical practice, we wonder whether the present infrastructure of medicine can support or even allow such major change. Are we in the position of someone contemplating major changes in the mode of transportation, where it would be totally unreasonable to use the infrastructure of the railroads as the basis for air travel? How should we go about creating a new and satisfactory infrastructure for medicine?
