ABSTRACTArtificial Intelligence (AI) in a first approximation can be defined as the branch of computer science that studies the automation of intelligent behavior. This research has led to the development of specific computational tools, which include a wide range of knowledge representation formalisms and related algorithms, in addition to the language of data structures and programming techniques used for its implementation. This mechanism is attempting to imitate the programs of artificial intelligence known as expert systems or knowledge-based systems. Softel Company, owned by the Ministry of Informatics and Communications (MIC), from its inception has developed medical informatics within this branch of artificial intelligence in applications such as INFOTOXI, in charge of monitoring and diagnosing poisoning by toxic products in centers devoted to this theme; GERISOFT, for Primary Health Care for the elderly and SAAS System Diagnostic Support in Primary Care. The development of these systems was supported in the knowledge of specialist doctors from the Ministry of Public Health of Cuba (MINSAP), in quality of experts in their respective subjects. These systems are deployed in different units of the health system
