Abstract

An interdisciplinary team of occupational health professionals and computer engineers at Digital Equipment Corporation have developed a computerized system for maintaining employee medical and exposure records. The Industrial Health Monitoring System (IHMS) was designed to meet the occupational and public health needs of employees engaged in semiconductor manufacturing operations where exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals and physical agents exists. The purpose of the IHMS is to systematically retrieve and analyze data collected from industrial hygiene, health services, and clinical diagnostic testing in order to monitor the general health of the working community.
