Bucefalo: A Tool for Intelligent Search and Filtering for Web-based Personal Health Records
This item is a Poster.
In this poster, a tool named BUCEFALO is presented. This tool is specially designed to improve the information retrieval tasks in web-based Personal Health Records (PHR). This tool implements semantic and multilingual query expansion techniques and information ﬁltering algorithms in order to help users ﬁnd the most valuable information about a speciﬁc clinical case. The ﬁltering model is based on fuzzy prototypes based ﬁltering, data quality measures, user proﬁles and healthcare ontologies. The ﬁrst experimental results illustrate the feasibility of this tool. standards the relevant health information is reliably and unambiguously tagged using XML within a single ﬁle. The use of XML allows that this information can be read, understood and processed for any application which uses the standard. Google Health and Microsoft Health use a subset of the CCR (Continuity of Care Record) standard. The CCR standard is the most used patient health summary. A document in CCR format is a XML document that consists of a header, a footer, and a body of health data organized into as many as 17 sections, e.g. problems and conditions, medications list, allergies list, family history, procedures, encounters, etc.. These web-based PHRs are examples of multi-user document repositories. The clinical reports can be read for different users (nurses, physicians, students) and for different purposes (diagnosis, learning, research). When a document repository has many users and many purposes, there are different points of view of the same repository structure. Therefore, it is necessary a technique able to manage these different points of view in knowledge retrieval tasks. In this case, fuzzy logic is especially recommendable due to its special features to model information retrieval applications.

About this site
This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.
Add your Slides, Posters, Supporting data, whatnots...
If you are presenting a paper or poster and have slides or supporting material you would like to have permentently made public at this website, please email
firstname.lastname@example.org - Include the file(s), a note to say if they are presentations, supporting material or whatnot, and the URL of the paper/poster from this site. eg. http://www2009.eprints.org/128/
It's impractical to add all the workshops at WWW2009 by hand, but if you can provide me with the metadata in a machine readable way, I'll have a go at importing it. If you are good at slinging XML, my ideal import format is visible at http://www2009.eprints.org/import_example.xml
We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it...
- WWW2009 EPrints supports OAI 2.0 with a base URL of http://www2009.eprints.org/cgi/oai2
- The JSON URL is http://www2009.eprints.org/cgi/json?callback=function&eprintid=number
To prevent google killing the server by hammering these tools, the /cgi/ URL's are denied to robots.txt - ask Chris if you want an exception made.
Feel free to contact me (Christopher Gutteridge) with any other queries or suggestions. ...Or if you do something cool with the data which we should link to!
These are not directly related to the EPrints set up, but may be of use to delegates.
- Social tool links
- I've put links in the page header to the WWW2009 stuff on flickr, facebook and to a page which will let you watch the #www2009 tag on Twitter. Not really the right place, but not yet made it onto the main conference homepage. Send me any suggestions for new links.
