Implementing a distributed intranet-based information system.
Topics in health information management
The article discusses Internet and intranet technologies and describes how to install an intranet-based information system using the Merle language facility and other readily available components. Merle is a script language designed to support decentralized medical record information retrieval applications on the World Wide Web. The goal of this work is to provide a script language tool to facilitate construction of efficient, fully functional, multipoint medical record information systems that can be accessed anywhere by low-cost Web browsers to search, retrieve, and analyze patient information. The language allows legacy MUMPS applications to function in a Web environment and to make use of the Web graphical, sound, and video presentation services. It also permits downloading of script applets for execution on client browsers, and it can be used in standalone mode with the Unix, Windows 95, Windows NT, and OS/2 operating systems.
