Knowledge Media in Healthcare: Opportunities and Challenges


The term "knowledge media," was defined by its coiner "as an information network with semi-automated services for the generation, distribution, and consumption of knowledge." These 14 contributions, presented by Grutter (U. of St. Gallen, Switzerland), attempt to answer the question of how recent trends towards knowledge media will change the way things are done in healthcare. Articles cover a history of the development of knowledge media, the use of classification models for the coding of diagnoses or indexing of medical subjects, a semantically advanced query language for medical knowledge and decision support, the lack of sophisticated security measures in computerized healthcare applications, the use of context- dependent access control to support distributed clinical trials, the acquisition and appraisal of current relevant clinical evidence, and the coding of medical information in electronic form.
