Summary of Research Memoranda.
The results of research work undertaken by the University of Pittsburg, and the Interuniversity Communications Council (EDUCOM), in behalf of the National Library of Medicine on the general subject of biomedical communications and information networks is summarized. The prinicpal purpose of the project is to explore the potential of the new communications technology for the distribution of medical information to physicians in support of their clinical, research, and educational interests. The research indicated that the world of medical information is a multi-dimensional problem. Medical information varies not only as a function of the physician's speciality, education, environment, and personal interests, but also as a function of his relationships with his patients and as a function of time.
