In 1971, the North Atlantic Council approved a pilot study adopted by the Committee on the Challenges of Modern Society to investigate various aspects of advanced health care in the participating countries. Four areas of primary interest were identified for intensive study: (1) organized ambulatory health services, led by the Federal Republic of Germany; (2) systematic assessment of health services led by Canada; (3) automated clinical laboratories led by UK; and (4) emergency medical services, an outgrowth of the Italian-led EMS project of the Road Safety Pilot Study, led under advanced health care by Portugal, Italy, and the United States.
