Welcome to the Archives

All Archive articles were written between 1997 and 2001. None have been converted to's new unified design, and the external links have not been maintained.
(updated) refers to content updated after the original article was published; nothing has been updated since 2001.

The Archives contains the full content from Medical Computing Today (MCToday), a free companion site to the then subscription based Medical Software Reviews, now Medical Computing Review. Created in 1997 by Susan Frisch, then the newsletter's owner and editor, and Marjorie Lazoff, MD, then columnist and member of the newsletter's editorial advisory board, MCToday maintained and updated its resources until 2001. From MCToday's mission statement: "Our mission is to present information appropriate to all levels of computing expertise and for all types of academic and clinical practice, while setting high standards for content and the application of Web technology. Included is a combination of peer reviewed original articles, annotated references to Web resources, and exchanges on medical computing by and among health care professionals...The editorial content is and will remain free of special interest or commercial influences."

These articles, lists and other resources are presented here because, despite the dated format and links, some of this content may still be of interest to the medical computing community. Please contact us if there is something here that you would like to see maintained or updated.
