Abstract
Clinical evidence exist in modalities other than published clinical literature, such as
clinical data ranging from patient clinical profiles to clinical trials; clinical experiences of
eminent medical practitioners; and medical knowledge bases encapsulating knowledge about
patient care, healthcare guidelines and protocols, clinical workflow and so on. We propose a
technology-enriched strategy to exploit advance computer technologies--Knowledge
Management, Data Mining, Case Based Reasoning Strategies and Internet Technology--
within traditional Evidence Based Medicine systems to derive all-encompassing clinical
evidence derived from heterogeneous clinical evidence modalities. The paper features a
conceptual overview of an Integrated Clinical Evidence System designed to augment the
typical literature-based clinical evidence with additional technology-mediated clinical
