The main challenge is to address the generation of techniques and tools to allow efficient and reliable access to vast amounts of information which currently are manually accessed by health care professionals. The volume of information that health professionals use in their daily task is enormous and it is growing. We believe that, in addition, the information contained in the web of specialized pages and/or social networks can provide medical content of different types based on the experience of patients. It is important that these professionals have mechanisms to facilitate an "advanced access" to information contained in these millions of documents of heterogeneous nature. By "advanced access" we mean access focusing on the concept and retrieval of the related medical information present in different documents and heterogeneous information sources.
The project has a multidisciplinary nature and will be addressed through collaboration between research groups expert in information technology and professionals in the health area. This collaboration can help to create synergies between the two parties.
The groups involved in the project are:
