Abstract

Currently the introduction of new technologies for efficient medical diagnosis and treatment is having a profound social and organizational impact, initiating the need to exploit the latent potential of novel methods. A requirement has emerged to maximally exploit the fusion of new technologies for more efficient patient care than is presently available. This scenario motivated the objective of the current paper, combining an existing medical diagnosis system which uses semantic technology and probabilistic techniques with Web 2.0 and geolocation methods to develop a system to locate the most appropriate doctor for a patient. Results of an initial prototype implementation are promising.
