Computers, the future of healthcare

ORLANDO, Fla.—Here’s a clip showing the great potential of computers for reducing the paperwork burden on nurses and other hospital workers—from 1966. Note that the computers didn’t even have video displays back then; they simply printed out the pertinent information. (So much for reducing paperwork.)

Thanks to AMDIS Chairman Dr. Bill Bria for alerting me to this exciting breakthrough. He showed this video during his presentation to the HIMSS Physician Symposium on Sunday.
