The application of information technology in the field of biomedicine has become increasingly important over the last several years. This paper presents a multi-agent system that incorporates agents with automatic planning capabilities based on the CBP-BDI (Case Based Planning) (Belief, Desire, Intention) architecture. This agent proposes a new reasoning agent model mechanism that can model complex processes as external services. The agents act as Web services coordinators that implement the four stages of the case-based planning cycle. The multi-agent system has been implemented in a real scenario to classify leukemia patients. The results obtained are presented within this paper and demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed organizational model.
