There has always been an important limitation in the information between primary care and specialized care, to such an extent that they did not know what others were doing. The new information systems (Abucassis, Pangea, Syas, etc.) wanted to improve this situation but in no case achieved a direct interaction between the health interlocutors of a patient nor did it serve as a learning tool for the teams. These situations generate lists of long waits and not being able to distinguish the urgent from the so urgent except by the individual criterion of the referrer. It is in this scenario when a promising project arises under the YAYO program, which is the implementation of the referral figure of pain in A. Primary, with specific training and interest in the subject and with direct relation with the hospital service of reference.
