The medical evidence aggregators can be separated into the medical evidence data mining system and the educational resources aggregator system. The goal of these systems is to retrieve medical evidence data and patient educational content, accordingly, from on-line authoritative sources. These kinds of information are either openly available to public, such as some government medical advice sites, or access based on subscriptions, such as PubMED, and MedLinePlus.
The aims of medical evidence data mining system are to:
- harvest data from medical state-of-the-art scientific literature databases for additional evidence on risk associations of cardiorenal disease and its comorbidity
- find new risk associations from latest publications of clinical trial results
Respectively, the aims of the educational resource aggregator system are to:
- harvest educational resources relevant to risk elements from 3rd party repositories
- present these resources to the medical expert for annotation and rating
Both aggregators will output the results of the annotation (together with resource metadata) to the CARRE public RDF repository.
