[edit] Abstract

In the future many people in industrialized countries will manage their personal health data electronically in centralized, reliable and trusted repositories - so-called personal health record systems (PHR). At this stage PHR systems still fail to satisfy the individual medical information needs of their users. Personalized recommendations could solve this problem. A first approach of integrating recommender system (RS) methodology into personal health records - termed health recommender system (HRS) - is presented. By exploitation of existing semantic networks like Wikipedia a health graph data structure is obtained. The data kept within such a graph represent health related concepts and are used to compute semantic distances among pairs of such concepts. A ranking procedure based on the health graph is outlined which enables a match between entries of a PHR system and health information artifacts. This way a PHR user will obtain individualized health information he might be interested in.
