Medicine is undergoing rapid changes. Health care reform will undoubtedly have a huge impact on the profession and will result in more patients with insurance coverage and less reimbursement per patient. Even without health care reform, pressures to control the cost of care will increase, because the US currently spends more on health care than other developed countries yet has generally poorer outcomes.
In addition, consumer groups have been questioning the quality of medical care since the 1999 Institute of Medicine Report that estimated that about 98,000 Americans die per year because of medical errors.1 The pay-for-performance model is now embedded within Medicare’s payment system, with as much as 5% of gross revenue dependent on star rating and another sizable amount of money allocated for meaningful use of information technology. There will likely be shortages of nurses, physicians, and other health care providers at the same time we face the challenge of providing coverage for more patients. Costs will continue to increase because of new technology, new and expensive medications, and the aging of our population.
The Control of Medical Education
The application of intelligent control system to the teaching effect evaluation of functional comprehensive experimental teaching is important. Intelligent control is to study and use some structure mechanism of human brain, knowledge and experience to control the system. With the intelligent control, the problem of control pattern can be regarded as the problem of recognition pattern.
The recognition pattern is the change of recognized signal into the action signal. Additionally, control system of neural network has good intelligence and robustness. It can deal with the control problem of complicated industrial production process with high dimension, nonlinearity, strong coupling and uncertainty. Its remarkable characteristic is that it has the learning ability, it can constantly correct the connection between units and store them, so it has good mapping ability for the nonlinear system which is difficult to model.
