In this paper we present a knowledge management framework that allows the
automatic linking/mapping of contextually and functionally similar medical
knowledge that may originate from different sources and be represented in diverse
modalities. Our tacit-explicit knowledge morphing framework supports the
extraction of tacit knowledge from past cases stored in a case-base and maps it to
corresponding explicit knowledge stored in clinical practice guidelines. The novelty
of our approach is inherent in the fact that it allows practitioners to simultaneously
refer to explicit knowledge--i.e. clinical practice guidelines--and experiential
knowledge--i.e. past clinical cases. Here we present the system design and intended
functionality of our knowledge morphing framework.
