Nowadays, there is a plethora of technology in hospitals and, in particular, in intensive care units. The clinical data produced everyday can be integrated in a decision support system in real-time to improve quality of care of the critically ill patients. However, there are many sensitive aspects that must be taken into account, mainly the data quality and the integration of heterogeneous data sources. This paper presents INTCare, an Intelligent Decision Support System for Intensive Care in real-time and addresses the previous aspects, in particular, the development of an Electronic Nursing Record and the improvements in the quality of monitored data.
