Abstract Attitudes toward computers held by various personnel in a medical center were surveyed to determine if recent developments bringing the public into closer regular contact with computers and related devices have resulted in any attitudinal changes since an earlier similar study reported in the literature in 1972. While some differences were found, the overall similarity of results in the two studies seems to indicate that, though people are still favorably disposed toward the use of computers in the health care field, their value is still regarded as unproven.
