Although computers are now commonly used for financial purposes in hospitals and physicians' offices, most physicians do not routinely use them in patient care. And in hospitals where laboratory data are provided on computer terminals, the displays are often difficult to use and programs that offer assistance in interpreting the data are usually unavailable. We have developed decision support programs that are widely used with the clinical computing system at our hospital. This paper describes the programs and how the clinicians use them.
