Abstract

Good preventive care requires the management of large quantities of patient-specific information in a logical and timely manner with careful monitoring for uncommon but significant clinical events. With an increase of informational pressures on the busy practicing physicians, they are turning to computers for help. This article discusses the evolution of computers in medicine, their current status, the rationale for their use in preventive care and their future roles in clinicians' offices.
