Improving Electronic Health Records Retrieval Using Contexts
Prados-Suárez B et al, Expert Systems with Applications, 2012
This paper aims to solve a recently arose problem, related to the access to the Electronic Health Records (EHR) in the Hospitals. Due to the digitalization of the information contained in the medical records, and the growing availability of devices that directly generate digital documents to include in it, the EHR are becoming unmanageable. Even more, to find a concrete item of information relevant for a given assistance act is a very hard, difficult and time-consuming task. To solve it we propose here the definition of contexts of access to the EHR, to exploit the logical division of the information inside each document in the EHR into data groups, and the computation of the pertinence of each data group to each context.
