As for inputting patient data I'm not sure what you
mean -- LaTeX is not used for any of that. What part
of GNUmed are you referring to ?

As for templating there's several parts to the answer:

1) There's a variety of formats you can choose from,
   not only LaTeX, including two varieties of XML.

2) (Xe)LaTeX delivers documents superior to ANY
   of the other formats.

3) XML isn't any more doctor friendly than LaTeX.
