Medical Applications of Remote Electronic Browsing.
The purposes of this study are to identify and define viable remote browsing techniques and the requirements for an interactive medical information system that would permit the use of such techniques. The main emphasis is in the areas of: (1) remote viewing of page material; and (2) remote interrogation of fact banks with question-answering abilities. After considering a variety of alternatives, a remote-viewing design approach was found that appears to be feasible, economical, and eminently well-suited for integration into the Biomedical Communications Network. In the areas of question-answering systems the development of deductive and language-processing capabilities was carried forward in the direction needed to support the requirements of a drug-effects information system. A small data base was constructed, and the formal ability of the system to carry out language analysis and deductions on this base was demonstrated. (Author/NH)
