[Coding, nomenclatures, PMSI, medical records, cards with microprocessors: what coherence?].

[Article in French]

Author information

  • 1Ministère de la Santé, Mission PMSI.


Computerization of information on health care delivery is being implemented in France. Within hospitals, the PMSI program aimed at coding and storing medical information on patients and their treatment has started. More recently was launched a program for computerizing outpatient care (coding and storing information on medical acts, pathologies and prescriptions). Patient individual cards with microprocessor have been implemented. The challenge ahead is how to coordinate all these processes to make them compatible, and coherent and to avoid wasteful disorders.
