Abstract

We began our efforts to computerize all of the functions of the Institute of Living, a 400 bed, private, nonprofit psychiatric hospital, including the full patient record, in 1962. In the intervening years we have gradually developed our concepts of appropriate computer and terminal hardware and the kind of programming capability and file structure necessary for optimum utilization of the system for day-to-day clinical care of our patients, as well as furnishing support for the administrative and business operations of the institution.
