Abstract

As Web 2.0 dramatically reduced the cost of reaching oth- ers, forming groups, obtaining and republishing information, today it is easy and rewarding for patients and carers to share their personal experiences with the health-care system. This social information, however, is often stored in natural language text and hence intrinsically unstructured, which makes comparison with the structured information supplied by health-care providers very di�cult. To bridge the gap be- tween these data, which though di�erent at structure-level are similar at concept-level, we exploit the semantics and sentics, i.e. the cognitive and a�ective information, associ- ated with on-line patient opinions and, hence, provide the end-users of the health system with a common framework to compare, validate and select their health-care providers.
