Abstract The medical data processing has been introduced 10 years ago in the city hospital of Neuchatel. The application includes a problem oriented electronic medical record, software assistance for diagnoses coding, diagnostic and therapeutic files, access to Medline, specific applications for intensive care and neonatology, and also a medical server meant for exchanging data with general practitioners and other hospitals. The reliability, the security and the usefulness of the application are discussed, as well as the orientation of the new application, being developed at present, is described. The physicians, i.e. today users, must prepare themselves the applications for the coming years. The treatment of the medical data must be optimal and also make the personal relationship between the physician and his patient easier.
