Abstract

In healthcare settings, patients need access to online information that can help them understand their medical situation. Physicians need information that is clinically relevant to an individual patient. In this paper, we present our progress on developing a system, PERSIVAL, that is designed to provide personalized access to a distributed patient care digital library. Using the secure, online patient records at New York Presbyterian Hospital as a user model, PERSIVAL's components tailor search, presentation and summarization of online multimedia information to both patients and healthcare providers.
