MetadataShow full item record
This study presents a summary of an extensive literature review on Automated Multiphasic Health Testing (AMHT) , concentrating on physician acceptance of the concept. A history of AMHT, a description of the testing process, and a discussion on evaluating physician acceptance of AMHT are provided. An attempt is made to assess the present level of civilian physician acceptance, based on the literature. Several factors which influence physician acceptance are identified and some methods of improving acceptance are proposed. Additionally, the results of a Navy Physician Opinion Survey conducted by the author are given and evaluated in terms of (1) Navy Physician acceptance of AMHT and (2) the hypotheses developed from the findings in the literature. The role of AMHT in the Navy's Health Care Delivery System is examined, considering past utilization and plans for the future. Finally, some concluding observations and predictions are presented.
