 For the treatment of Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia (HAP) is necessary accuracy in diagnosis, according to the guidelines of a hospital. Moreover, the diagnosis and treatment of HAP should be performed immediately. To assist in this process, this work presents the PneumoH, which consists in a mobile application for supporting to physicians in the HAP's diagnosis and treatment. In order to evaluate PneumoH, an acceptance test was accomplished in a high circulation public hospital, relying on the participation of an infectious diseases expert. Our preliminary evaluation of the PneumoH indicates that it is useful for clinical practice.
