MetadataShow full item record
There is a gap between the amount of medication information desired by patients and information provided to them by health care providers at the point of care. To address unmet drug information needs for patients, this research takes a knowledge management approach to design and develop an ontology-driven knowledge-based system with the goal of providing patients with personalized medication information about their prescribed antidiabetic drugs. The evaluation results demonstrated the technical feasibility and application prospects of our solution to inform patients on elements of medication information in anti-diabetic drug regimens during their office visits.
