Abstract: 

With characteristic wisdom and foresight, Clement J. McDonald, M.D., et al presented excellent advice to the medical profession in general and the AMA specifically. As one of the real pioneers in using the computer in clinical practice, he is uniquely aware of the possible barriers to full utilization of this new technology. Heeding his counsel will help avoid repeating the gross mistakes of past incompatibilities that have retarded or severely limited the potential of several technological modalities (e.g., videotape, videodisc, and computer software). Perhaps this article will provoke the discussions that will result in appropriate actions. {Editor's Note)
