This paper describes two extensions which are possible within the architecture of the Patient Care System-Application Development System (PCS-ADS). The first is the notion of portability within or without a network environment. The second is an overview of a LISP interpreter executing in the PCS-ADS architecture. PCS-ADS has an architecture suited for portable applications. Regardless which CPU or operating system provides "run under" services, a PCS-ADS execution module may be programmed to accept and correctly execute any of the following PCS-ADS application objects: Screens, Print Formats, Data Collection Lists and function commands. Furthermore, PCS-ADS Screens, Print Formats, and Data Collection Lists are records which may be either stored globally in the host or locally in a minicomputer or PC.
