AbstractThis study provides a cost benefit comparison of five telecommunication systems for meeting the specified continuing clinical education needs as identified in a policy Delphi study of 27 Army Medical Department offices and installations. Needs were defined as the combination of state and national license, certification, and registration requirements and specific content associated with continuing medical, nursing, dental, pharmacy, and health education. Telecommunication systems were examined in terms of equipment and transmission costs. A panel of AMEDD managers was used to determine system perceived benefits.
