In times of great volumes data on the web on a daily basis, this study aims to reflect about public health and, at the same time, the potential of open scientific research and the context of its complexity in knowledge management.
The available data volume on the web exceeds 2.5 x 1018 new bytes / day. These data are presented in a variety of ways, such as videos, photos, articles, reports etc. Thus, it is necessary to gauge the veracity and value of them for the correct decision making. Whereas about 43% of the data are related to Health and that about one million articles published a year are from the health area, it is necessary to think about non-trivial models to solve local health problems with a global focus.
In this scenario, collaborative intelligence, web 2.0 Open, they have been shown essential tools for solving problems
of the wounds of humanity and many more agile than the old science closed – isolated groups without sharing their data or, when they share, do so at prices that are inaccessible to the developing or underdeveloped world. Therefore, without exhausting the subject, we want to contribute for the perception of the value of information for the public health area with tools and free access information for an open science accessible to all mankind.
