Medical and hospital data processing in France

  • François Grémy


It appears that in a very centralized country like France there is no definite governmental policy for medical data processing. This lack of policy given to medical informatics is obvous if one considers the number of professors and researchers recruited, the amount of research and development contracts granted: They are close to being ridiculously small. Despite this unfavorable situation, thanks to individual efforts, a substantial numbre of projects have been implemented and have proved to be useful and acceped by the medical community. Our hope is that, thanks to these tactics, medical informatics will prove to be indispensable and feel like a “fish in the water,” according to Mao's advice.
