Personalized computers or microcomputers have altered irrevocably the ways Americans conduct business, play, educate, and even live. Medicine has also not been immune to the invasion of microcomputers. These machines have already proved they can perform many clinical and administrative tasks in physicians' offices. In addition, despite some limitations, microcomputers have facilitated the analysis of data collected in family practice settings. As technological improvements result in larger data-storage capabilities, more extensive applications of microcomputers for medical management and office practice will undoubtedly occur.
