First, the cyclical creation of new knowledge in a learning health care system will become reality only if individual hospitals, academic medical centers, and national coordinating bodies work together to provide the standards, infrastructure, and resources that are necessary. No individual system developer, vendor, or administrator can mandate the standards for connectivity, data pooling, and data sharing implied by a learning health care system. A national initiative of cooperative planning and implementation for computing and communications resources within and among institutions and clinics is required before practitioners will have routine access to the information that they need (see Chap.

12 Tabulating machines. ) the difficulties they encountered, however, were still formidable. The earliest work on HISs in the United States was probably that associated with the MEDINET project at General Electric, followed by work at Bolt, Beranek, Newman in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and then at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston. A number of hospital application programs were developed at MGH by Barnett and his associates over three decades beginning in the early 1960s.

Nurses often think of computer-based tools for charting the care that they deliver, or decision-support tools that assist in applying the most current patient-care guidelines. The field includes study of all these activities and a great many others too. More importantly, it includes the consideration of various external factors that affect the biomedical setting. Unless you keep in mind these surrounding factors, it may be difficult to understand how biomedical computing can help us to tie together the diverse aspects of health care and its delivery.
