``The Technology of Automated Multiphasic Health Testing (AMHT)'' was examined in Davos, Switzerland, during September 14-18, 1970, at the first international conference supported by the Engineering Foundation. The 159 conference members from 14 different nations discussed AMHT on the basis of its involvement in the use of automated laboratory equipment and medical instruments in combination with computers to provide numerous accurate and reliable tests as well as other procedures to a large number of people with a minimum of highly trained personnel. Topics covered in the plenary sessions included ``AMHT in Perspective,'' ``Recent Progress in AMHT,'' ``Utilizing AMHT in Developing Countries,'' ``The Role of the Engineer in AMHT,'' ``AMHT in Patient Surveillance and Patient Management,'' ``How to Organize and Operate an AMHT Facility,'' and ``Device Safety.'' A special session was presented on ``Clinical Chemistry.'' Evening workshops were held on ``Quantitative Neurological Evaluation,'' ``The Role of the Engineer in AMHT,'' ``Trend Detection in Cardiology,'' ``Automatic Cytology,'' and ``Blood Chemistry Measurements¿New Approaches to Automation.'' Conference proceedings will be published by the Engineering Foundation.
