- DONALD A. B. LINDBERG: You know, we have an interest in looking back 25 years that this program, which started out with much
enthusiasm and didn't last as long as its proponents hoped. What do you think was the...what were some of the merits of
the program? Let's take the good side first: what did it achieve in terms of activities you were able to observe?
- EDWARD J. HINMAN: Well unfortunately, it didn't reach its full potential. I think the things that it did do was that it
began to get people talking on the professional side. Not just the consumers, but professionals talking about how health care
services could be delivered outside the medical school arena, which was, of course, part of the original intent, to be able
to diffuse technology of one sort from the medical schools out to the practicing physicians. That dialog did get initiated
after some false starts, and I think there have been some areas where there was some impact that it still persists."
