H. Shortliffe and M. S. 7. A future vision of surveillance databases, in which clinical data are pooled in regional and national repositories through a process of data submission that occurs over the Internet (with attention to privacy and security concerns as discussed in the text). When information is effectively gathered, pooled, and analyzed, there are significant opportunities for feeding back the results of derived insights to practitioners at the point of care. The practical need to pool and integrate clinical data from such diverse resources and systems emphasizes the practical issues that must be addressed if this vision is to be achieved.

Government to support even the major backbone connections. Many people point to the Internet as a superb example of the facilitating role of federal investment in promoting innovative technologies. The Emergence of a Discipline 13 Internet is a major societal force that arguably would never have been created if the research and development, plus the coordinating activities, had been left to the private sector. The explosive growth of the Internet did not occur until the late 1990s, when the World Wide Web (which had been conceived initially by the physics community as a way of using the Internet to share preprints with photographs and diagrams among researchers) was introduced and popularized.
