Health Education Network
The Health Education Network, Inc., is an outgrowth of the Experimental CAI Network sponsored by the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications (LHNCBC) of the National Library of Medicine described in Chapter 8. Convinced of the utility of sharing of health-related courseware and the inherent advantages of networking, a group of former users of the Experimental CAI Network have taken steps to preserve nationwide access to the libraries of CAI programs (data bases) available at The Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and The Ohio State University (OSU). The purpose of this new support structure is to facilitate, maintain, and preserve economical, nationwide access to computer-assisted instructional materials for health education (Health Education Network, 1975).
