We present a Personalized Health Information Generation and Delivery System that
leverages case based reasoning techniques to dynamically author a Personalized Health
Information Package based on an individual's current health profile. The work features a
compositional adaptation approach, whereby relevant health information elements from the
solution component of multiple similar past cases are carefully selected and systematically
combined to yield a new personalized health information package. We have implemented a
generic Java-based case based reasoning engine that applies a novel compositional
adaptation algorithm to author a HTML-based personalized health information package that
can be emailed to users.
One of the most notable paradigm shifts in healthcare is the preeminence of the wellness
maintenance paradigm--a corollary of which is the proliferation of `generic' healthcare portals
