The Finnish Hospital League set up in 1971 a committee with the following three tasks:
  1. 1

    to present a proposal for an unit medical record system for all the general hospitals in the country;

  2. 2

    to establish to which extent it would be possible to use this system for introducing a so-called problem-orientated approach in the care of the patient;

  3. 3

    to make a proposal about how the medical record system could be expanded to cover the different medical institutions, i.e. to find out whether it would be possible to have one medical record per patient in one medical district.
