If the efforts of the programme committee to obtain contributions on the systematic evalutation of the effects of computer support of medical transfusion services were in vain, there might be several reasons:
  • the need for systematic evaluation is not perceived during early stages of system construction and, therefore, the evolving systems do not lend themselves to evaluation;

  • the merits of transfusion medicine are considered to be self-evident and, consequently, supposed to apply to the supporting EDP systems;

  • many systems may not have reached a stage where systematic evaluation is desirable.
