Best practice guidelines define the essential elements of care. They can improve the treatment of patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Although guidelines advocating these elements are readily avail­able, the care received by patients with CAP remains heterogeneous. In the present report, the use of a ­computer-based assistant to decision-making was ­successfully developed and tested, improving the application of well-known guidelines.
