GP Computing – the First Ten Years
4 February 2021 1800-2000
To celebrate forty years since the foundation of the Primary Health Care Specialist Group, and the publication of the Royal College of GPs seminal paper ‘Computers in Primary Care’, we bring together a panel of experts who were closely involved in the early developments of medical computing. They will talk about the fun, the excitement, and the personalities of those heady days in general practice, as well as describe how and why we ended up with the primary care systems we have now.
From the days before email and the Internet, topics under discussion will include the very early systems, the Micros for GPs project of 1982, the mass uptake with the ‘no-cost option’ systems, the development of clinical codes, and the use of complex data sets to improve patient care.
