Abstract:Short consultations and a large and growing amount of available medical information make searching for suitable information difficult for general practitioners. Thus information is often not searched for or not found, diminishing the quality of care. We propose a system that offers decision support by combining medical information sources with data from the electronic patient record. A first evaluation shows that a system like Medintel can be a useful supportive tool and can increase the quality of care provided by general practitioners.
