The lecture will not only address the application of new technologies in the health area, but will also explain the individual records of demographic, personal and health information, which are absolutely necessary for clinical practice. These are the Health Records Systems, the S-RES, which are electronically stored data.

Among the aspects to be highlighted by the speaker are: the format and standards of information representation, such as the specific terminologies for each area: CID, NANDA, CIPE, LOINC, SNOMED CT etc.; databases and software; structured data; the relevant aspects of ethics and the profession; the legislation that regulates the sector, including the General Personal Data Protection Law; secondary or derivative applications, such as epidemiology and population health; the data needed for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications; exchange or interoperability. At the time, hyperintensive data (big data) and their role in future health will also be discussed.
