MyHealthEducator: Personalization in the age of health 2.0

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Most Europeans use the Internet for searching health information [1] and many of them use the Web 2.0 to access health information and services, share knowledge and socialize. There is an emerging trend towards the developing of personalized Health 2.0 applications which could dramatically change how the health consumers use the Web. This paper provides an overview of personalization in the Health 2.0 domain and it presents the ongoing project MyHealthEducator, which is an early example of personalization in the Age of Health 2.0. MyHealthEducator aims to study the feasibility of using Recommender Technologies for delivering personalized and adaptive recommendations of web health information based on the user's Personal Health Records and content from their community (e.g. user's comments).
