The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of the Evidence-Based Medicine electronic Decision Support (EBMeDS) automatic reminders in primary health care.

Hypothesis (1)is that in the intervention group the total number of EBMeDS reminders will decrease compared to the control group.

Hypothesis (2) is that in the intervention group the quality measures will increase faster compared to the control group at follow-up time.
