In order to improve anti-hypertensive therapy in the Czech population, a new version of the predominantly educational program for PCs called Hypertenze was prepared. The program offers a user essential information and explanation of decisions taken step-by-step in a graded form from basic to detailed information which is easily accessible by browsing. Information concerns both the properties of drugs (contra-indications, adverse events, dosing and drug interactions) and the economy of treatment (price of the package, defined daily dose and its price). It seems that this program might be useful for Czech physicians to improve their therapy of hypertension. The program could also be used to a great extent for other populations
