  • In the past ten years, research has focused on the knowledge processes and distribution of knowledge in healthcare. This is done using a knowledge base drawn from cognitive science, information theory, medical informatics, and linguistics. This is translated into clinical information support systems that aid the patient's journey through healthcare by sharing knowledge along the way.
