This chapter examines managerial medicine's effort to standardize industrial engineering in hospitals, clinic and the doctor's office. Managerial medicine provides a long agenda for investigation. This includes the validity of its versions of automated medicine, the reliability of databases upon which automated medicine depends and the degree of variation in the medical decision making of different managed care companies. It also highlights the role of the physician in this process.
