Abstract

In this paper we describe a novel social-medical discovery solution, based on an idea of social and medical data unification. Built on foundations of exploratory search technologies, the proposed discovery solution is better tailored for the social-medical discovery task. We then describe its implementation within the IBM Medics system and discuss a sample usecase which demonstrates several new social-medical discovery opportunities.
