Systems Interoperability and Electronic Health Records are responsible for an exponential number of visits in electronic repository, either in terms of medical professionals or related staff. This is paramount for a better and sustainable quality-of-care in clinical assistance and of great potential to medical research. Following these lines of though, we present an agency for the diffusion, integration and archiving of medical information, and show how semantic web can enforce the use of electronic documents in order to envisage free-paper hospitals.
