Abstract

Online healthcare forums provide a valuable platform for people to share medical information and support each other. However, currently the rich information shared on healthcare forums has not been fully explored. In this work, we first motivate the need for patient-centric, multi-role, and multi-dimension information exploration. We then present our patient-centric information exploration prototype system and show its effectiveness with preliminary experiment evaluation. We have also identified some potential techniques for multi-role and multi-dimension information exploration.
