Computer-based patient records, although an area of active research, are not in widespread use.
In June 1992, 38% of Dutch general practitioners had introduced computer-based patient records.
Of these, 70% had replaced the paper patient record with a computer-based record to retrieve and record clinical data during consultations.
Possible reasons for the use of computer-based patient records include the nature of Dutch general practice and the early and active role of professional organizations in recognizing the potential of computer-stored patient records.
Professional organizations issued guidelines for information systems in general practice, evaluated available systems, and provided postgraduate training that prepares physicians to use the systems.
