Over recent years the amount of health related information available via the Internet has greatly increased, and is being provided by a vast array of information providers, from government-owned public bodies to charities and to individuals publishing based on their experiences. This paper addresses the two main challenges to using this information: information overload and information quality. It also proposes a unique solution to these problems that can be used across all medical conditions, by facilitating the personalisation of online information searches, and enabling patient access to a proposed common EPRS in Wales.
