The Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is a core application which covers horizontally the health care unit and makes possible a transverse analysis of medical records along the services, units or treated pathologies, bringing to the healthcare arena new methodologies for problem solving, computational models, technologies and tools. One aims to develop a comprehensive, structured approach to EMR development and analysis. Indeed, this paper will thrash out the inner features of intelligent agents to be used in the EMR, in the context of the Telemedical Information Society, a step in the direction of Intelligent Health Care Units.
