Abstract

The recent explosion of medical information available in digital libraries on the Internet provides users with overwhelming amount of medical knowledge. Although the number of patients seeking health related information online is steadily growing, the great potential of this revolutionary technology has not been fully exploited. Professionals often cannot find information when and where they need it; members of public are unaware of varying quality of medical information and often seek health advice from unauthorized and misleading Web sites. In addition, little is known about the real impact of medical knowledge provision on clinical care. Based on our experience with the development of real-world government medical digital libraries in the UK (NeLI and AR DL), we will discuss key issues around knowledge management, healthcare ontologies, quality approval and a new opportunity for online communities of practice around healthcare digital libraries.
