With the use of new computational technologies and novel methodologies for problem solving, recurring to the use of Group Decision Support Systems, normally the problem of incomplete information is marginalized as if we were living in an ideal world. Common sense tells us that in the precise time a decision is make it is impossible to know all the information regarding to it, however decisions must be made. What we propose, in the ambit of the VirtualECare project, is a possible solution to decision making, through the use of Group Decision Support Systems, aware of incomplete information but, even so, able to make decisions based in the quality of the information and its source.
