Consumer Tools for Health Information Search

post
MedInfoSearchSplash
We created a technology probe for a formative study to better understand how search results can be augmented to enable non-experts to better assess medication-related web search results. The probe was developed by applying text-processing techniques and probabilistic generative topic modeling approaches to a large collection of web-based resources. Hospitalized patients used the probe to search for information about their inpatient medications.
