Dunbar C. Survey shows continued strong interest in UNIX applications for healthcare. Comput Healthc. 1993;14(3):47-9, 52, 55.
As part of the general computer industry movement toward open systems, many are predicting UNIX will become the dominant host operating system of the late 1990s. To better understand this prediction within the healthcare setting, Computers in Healthcare surveyed our readership about their opinions of UNIX, its current use and its relative importance as an information services strategy. The upshot? CIH readers definitely want more systems on UNIX, more healthcare applications written for UNIX and more trained resource people to help them with faster installation and more useful applications.
