    Abstract

    The New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator was created by the New Mexico State Legislature in a series of statutes which became effective on 1 July 1973. The comprehensive nature of this legislation and its subsequent statewide implementation created a unique opportunity for the effective use of electronic data processing for augmenting the functions of the office. Accordingly, preliminary planning was begun early in 1975 with the employment of two part-time programmers and the placement of equipment orders. Preliminary system development and programming was accomplished before the delivery of the equipment in June, 1976.
