Computerized Doctor Office Systems: The Benefit to the Hospital, Physician, and Patient

  • Byron B. Oberst
Part of the Computers in Health Care book series (HI)


The rapidly changing field of healthcare delivery is fraught with problems and decisions. Among these are increasing competition from many sources, increasing costs of providing services, diminishing patient populations in some age divisions, and intrusion of third party entities into the physician/patient relationship. Practitioners must learn management skills not included in their medical school curricula or training programs, and they must deal with the growth of varied and sophisticated patient groups regarding health and health education.
