Abstract
Physicians are used to meet and discuss cases periodically and the objective of the discussion is not only finding diagnosis and better treatment options, but to share knowledge and teach residents. Although the discussions are very rich, they are also unstructured and not well documented. This work proposes the use of collaborative tools and proper archiving of the discussions, aiming to collect and store the knowledge exposed in medical meetings in a structured form for future retrieval. To achieve this goal, this research involves fields like CSCW (Computer Supported Collaborative Work), Natural Language Processing and Telemedicine. This research is a work in progress and is focused on the Brazilian health care context. A model for electronic medical discussion and archiving is presented.
