Abstract

People and patients are increasingly using the internet to search for health information, but finding the right terms to search requires iterative search and query reformulation [1], which may be difficult for lay persons who do not have much medical knowledge. To solve the problem, we propose an interactive searching mechanism where resources are annotated using existing healthcare database and search result could be automatically updated based on users' feedback.
