The availability of complete, accurate, and current medical information is an important aspect of clinical problem solving. As the body of medical information grows and increasingly is reformatted into problem-oriented references, information processing by physicians will grow in importance. The most popular clinical problem-solving method, the Weed problem-oriented medical record, primarily records information; it does not provide an explicit information-processing model. An emergency medicine clinical problem-solving system containing information recording and processing methodologies is presented. The information processing methodology of this system is highlighted.
