Abstract

Referral letters are common means by which healthcare practitioners exchange information relevant to patient care. It has been argued that information contained in letters of referral and reply often does not meet the information needs of letter receipting.GPs (general practitioners) and specialist require knowledge and information at point of care that is related to patient specification to narrow the information gap and to assist towards better interpretation of referral letters.Given this problem at hand we present, in this paper ECKA (Evidence based clinical knowledge assistance) framework that provides evidence based clinical knowledge assistance from clinical practice guidelines and medical explicit knowledge in terms of medical literature from Medline/Pubmed pertaining to referral letter.This will help narrow the information gap at point of care and to provide better interpretation of referral letters.
