Even in complex cases: KConnect helps the doctor find the right treatment

There is a huge amount of health related information available, either as medical literature on the web, or as patients records kept by doctors and hospitals but in practice it is often difficult to access and use this information. For instance, doctors cannot quickly access anonymized medical records of similar cases or matching clinical trials or treatments to the ones they are handling, although this could often help them to make the best-decision on how to treat a patient. This could change thanks to the KConnect project: It will provide a set of medical-specific multilingual text processing services to health care providers and researchers.
