    A large fraction of medical care is delivered in ambulatory settings. It is a hypothesis of this program that a significant fraction of physician-patient encounters can be safely managed by paramedics with no past medical experience and with a minimum of training (about four weeks), operating under well-defined guidance protocols. The paramedic using the protocols can either substitute for the phy... View full abstract»

    Adequate medical care for all who need it is an admirable concept that has been accepted by this country and by the medical profession; yet, until now, there has been no way of reaching that objective. The elimination of user fees is merely an empty promise, creating more losses than gains. View full abstract»

    A new process is described in which the relation between outcomes of clinical neurological tests and neural pathways is utilized to identify locations of probable lesions. The test outcomes of a clinical neurological examination serve as input to a computer whose output is a map indicating locations of probable malfunction (lesion), as well as locations of probable function. This map involves the ... View full abstract»

    The clinical importance of existing powered prosthetic devices is investigated. In this regard, several powered prosthetic systems that are in practical use are reviewed and put in perspective with respect to body-powered systems. The unique problems of delivery and maintenance of these systems are discussed as are practical design limitations. An appraisal is made of development trends in the fie... View full abstract»

    Loss of volitional control of lower urinary tract function follows degenerative neurologic diseases and traumatic spinal cord injury. The development of implantable prosthetic devices for restoring function has evolved over the last ten years from the use of electrical detrusor stimulation to include urethral occlusion and volume sensing capabilities. Further efforts aimed at stimulating normal re... View full abstract»

    Many elements for the construction of a health delivery system now exist but they are spotty and diffused. Much effort has been concentrated on primary care affecting 10 percent of the people but ⅓ of the costs of the system. Little attention has been paid to the other elements-prevention, protection, tertiary care, and rehabilitation, although these may eventually have greater effectivene... View full abstract»

    What should be the priorities for health-care technology a decade from now? Given enormous population expansion and pressure, given increased concern with health care, given diminished efficiency of care owing to these overpressures, and given an enticing banquet of sophisticated technology-what should we do now to shape the future, explicitly and deliberately, so that ten years from now we will n...

    The future role for technology in health-care delivery will be greatly affected by the current debate over national health insurance. A study of the various proposals now in Congress reveals that most bills have in common financial incentives to encourage prepaid comprehensive health-care delivery through group practices called health-maintenance organizations (HMO's). Unlike the typical hospital ... View full abstract»
