Butler-Paisley, Matilda; And Others
Ten Veterans Administration hospitals in Appalachia participated in five biomedical communication experiments using the Advanced Technology Satellite (ATS-6). Material was collected and evaluated by both questionnaires and interviews with the medical staff of the 10 hospitals. The five experiments were conducted in the areas of: (1) video seminars, (2) grand rounds, (3) teleconsultation, (4) out-patient clinics, (5) computer-assisted instruction. The programs studied and the hospitals participating in the satellite experiment are appended. A 7-item bibliography is included. (Author/DS)
