Things to know about medical software. The Territory and Health Support Group organizes one or two information forums each year on a topic related to interdisciplinary centers and medical centers. These meetings are intended for medical workers, as well as for elected representatives, as well as for all those who are thinking about organizing primary health care. This is a privileged time for meetings, exchanges.

The medical information system is an important element that can be viewed along two axes:

  • the functionality of a computer system and, in particular, software for business,
  • an element that casts doubt on the project infrastructure: hardware, installation, data hosting, maintenance.

It was thanks to these two aspects that the work of the seminar was built, which was preceded by events representing the national and regional context. If this forum has been established for purposes based on the experience of health centers and homes in action, and through exchanges with various participants, to develop recommendations or at least draw attention to a few points. Vigilance in the information system, exchanges will show that the subject is large and complex, so that we can reach them in half a day. In addition to the participant file, which includes all the materials presented by the speakers, this synthesis offers wonderful elements that were discussed on this forum.

The interest of the medical record in the practice of general medicine is well known. His good behavior is an important and indispensable component of the practice of general medicine. As a result, general practitioners use daily medical software. Previously, paper was mainly computerized for 77% 2–92% 3 general practitioners. With the democratization of computers driven by reforms and government commitments, doctors have become computerized and connected. Currently, 89% are connected to the Internet in their offices.

The future of general medicine is increasingly moving towards the computerization of everyday practice and brings together new tools offered by developers. Today we are in the field of cloud technology, telemedicine and various electronic tools and applications. But do these new tools, which are increasingly being offered to GPs as their software develops, really interest them? What does the standard GP actually use daily? According to the thesis of general medicine conducted at the University of Paris 7: 58.7% of them criticize their software.

Another thesis of general medicine concludes that, it seems, not a single software meets their expectations. According to the doctor’s team, the main obstacle to the computerization of liberal doctors is the fact that LSPs do not fit their needs.

Expert groups on the topic mix opinions in samples of people interested in this topic. Participants in this type of survey are sometimes much more connected with the world of research on the development of new computer tools than with observing the patient and the reality of the consultation. Large groups of software developers, of course, have a financial interest and may not be objective (the struggle for innovation or economic reasons).

This thesis aims to gather the opinions and expectations of standard general practitioners in order to find out what they actually use today in their business software, to better identify promising tools of the future, to better meet their expectations and increase their level of satisfaction. The purpose of this thesis is to highlight what may be of real interest in everyday practice, and to minimize the impact of various issues in orbit around the object of the most popular medical software.

According to the HAS, the patient’s medical record is “a place for collecting and storing administrative, medical and paramedical information, formalized and updated, registered for any patient received for any reason.” This file should ensure the traceability of all actions performed. It is a tool for communication, coordination, and information between healthcare providers and patients. He tracks and understands the way of patient care. This is a central element of the quality of care, ensuring their continuity as part of multidisciplinary and multidisciplinary care. It is a tool for reflection and medical and paramedical synthesis for the purpose of a preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approach
