Early work at BBN involved hospital computer systems, computer aids for the physician's office, data management tools for clinical research, and database and computational support for biomedical research. The work included both development of prototype systems and later deployment of commercially viable software and services. This history also notes some of the challenges of working within an R & D defense-contractor environment and then concludes with lessons learned in developing medical computer applications.
