A Study on the Feasibility of Establishing a National Medical Dial Access Information Retrieval System. Final Report.
Meyer, Thomas C.
This study examines the costs and operating problems associated with a national center which in response to telephone calls would provide any one of 1000 five or six minute recorded messages; in this case there are envisaged to be on patient-care problems. The phone calls are assumed to arrive via Inward Wide Area Telephone Service (INWATS) lines and the number and costs of such lines are computed. An automatic message selection unit is described. Guidelines for data base development and promotion of the service are also provided. (Author)
