Problem-Oriented Medical Record in Intensive Care
Expanding medical knowledge in the past decades and clinical innovations have created an information crisis of staggering proportions (6). Medical specialization and the accumulation of increased data from patients characterize modern medical practice; on the other hand, symptoms of this information crisis are inefficiency, lack of continuity of care, problems treated out of context, loss of patient data, inadequate evaluation of performance and inaccessible information (2–5,16,19, 20).
