Abstract

The decision making process conducted by health professionals is strongly linked to the consultations of clinical guidelines, generally available in large text files, making the access to the information very laborious and time consuming. The health area is very fertile for the emergence of solutions based on mobility. Among others, there are solutions that offer to the doctor the access to the right information when and where needed, contributing so that the health services can be performed at anytime and anywhere. This study presents an application for mobile devices where you can get access to the content of clinical guidelines (in this case Tuberculosis’ clinical guideline). The prototype was evaluated by medical experts, showing promising results.
