Critical, intertwined objectives for consultation psychiatry include 1) the development of data-based clinical practices, and 2) heightening the effectiveness of consultation. Toward these ends, the Consultation Psychiatry Service at the University of Minnesota has previously conducted systematic studies of consultation and established an ongoing data collection system for consultations. Both steps have relied extensively upon mainframe computer capability. This primary application of computer capability to the field of psychiatric consultation is reviewed by the authors.
