Abstract

This paper extols the value of combining two systems in order to improve learning, teaching, communication, patient care, and clinical research in patients with heart disease. This is accomplished by using Weed's recommendation regarding the creation of a complete Problem List and, within this context, characterizing the cardiac or vascular problem according to the recommendations of the New York Heart Association.
