Paper Abstract

The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) has four programs directly supporting the Clinton Administration’s Health Care and National Information Infrastructure initiatives. An Idaho Medical Information Consortium (IMIC) was formed to leverage DOE and private sector resources to provide improved health care to rural regions. A DOE/INEL cooperative relationship with the Medical University of South Carolina was established. A commercial radioisotope production facility based on an operating INEL reactor has been proposed. A proposal to privatize a dormant INEL nuclear reactor for conversion to a clinical brain tumor treatment facility is under consideration by DOE.
