Cross-Search Technique and its Visualization of Peer-to-Peer Distributed Clinical Documents

Authors: Yong Jun Choi, Juman Byun, Simon Berkovich


One of the ubiquitous routines in medical practice is searching through voluminous piles of clinical documents. In this paper we introduce a distributed system to search and exchange clinical documents. Clinical documents are distributed peer-to-peer. Relevant information is found in multiple iterations of cross-searches between the clinical text and its domain encyclopedia.

Keywords: Clinical documents, cross-search, document exchange, information retrieval, peer-to-peer.
