Catalog type History
Provenance From "New Clinical Research Information System Planned to Replace MIS," NIH Record, Oct. 16, 2001: "In 1975, having a TV-like device that sat on the desktop and offered immediate access to hundreds of thousands of pages of patient records seemed like only a dream for the nurses, physicians, pharmacists and dozens of other professionals charged with patient care at the Clinical Center. But MIS — the computerized medical information system that made its NIH debut that year — turned the dream into a reality. Designed to collect, transmit and store information about patients, MIS was a pioneering system few other hospitals could boast having at the time. "

This brochure describes the computerized Medical Information System (MIS), how it works, its advantage, etc. The brochure was produced by the Clinical Center Office of Clinical Reports and Inquiries. MIS debuted in 1975, and was implemented by Dr. Griff Ross, Deputy Director, CC.
