Abstract: Many studies have indicated that most patients are not satisfied with the medical treatment information on the Web though many e-health tools provide links to materials or other websites that have information about patient’s health conditions or medications. In addition, many studies have demonstrated that patients should have easy access to their own health information as well as to any information they need in order to make decisions about their own heath care. However, while there are a variety of tools for managing and sharing medical information, no integrated tool for health information management and sharing has been developed. Satisfying this challenge requires a means to capture and interconnect information from various sources which are relevant to one patient and create personal health space containing links to the health information that are related to the customer or of which the customer is interested in. In this paper we describe our work on developing a personal health assistant, which integrates the tools supporting personal health records, information therapy and health oriented blogs. Technically the personal health assistant is based on knowledge management technologies, and it is easily extensible to capture additional e-health tools. (More)
