Computer-aided systems engineering (CASE) is a software technology that helps systems developers write complex application programs. CASE has been identified as having the potential to help health information systems developers complete large-scale projects such as the computer-based patient record or community health information network. The article evaluates the current use of CASE in health care and other settings through a review of the literature. There is no consensus on the value of CASE. Many experts believe that it is an emerging technology that will become widespread, whereas others see it as expensive and cumbersome to use.
