Abstract
BY COMBINING RECENT ADVANCES IN HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, AND STATISTICAL INFORMATION, AN EASY-TO-USE, INTERACTIVE MICRO- COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ENABLE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT DIRECTORS TO (1) MEASURE AND MONITOR THE QUALITY AND LEVEL OF ICU CARE, AND (2) EVALUATE AND DOCUMENT THE STATUS OF INDIVIDUAL PATIENTS.
