Abstract
Clinical decision-making involves an active interplay between various medical knowledge
modalities--the spectrum of medical knowledge modalities spanning from tacit knowledge to
experiential knowledge to explicit knowledge to data-induced knowledge. The ability to
simultaneously access and then integrate multiple knowledge modalities pertaining to a
common clinical theme is profound for clinical decision making. In this concept paper we
introduce knowledge morphing--a knowledge modeling task that allows the integration of
heterogeneous medical knowledge modalities, with respect to a clinical case, to yield a
comprehensive knowledge resource for decision-support.

Clinical decision-making involves an active interplay between various medical
knowledge modalities--the spectrum of medical knowledge modalities spanning from
tacit knowledge to experiential knowledge to explicit knowledge to data-induced
knowledge [1-4]. More specifically, in a medical context the different knowledge
