Abstract. Web portals provide an efficient gateway to a broad range of E-
services, resources and information. Web portals need to evolve towards being
adaptive in nature, so that the ensuing E-services provided by them are dynami-
cally tailored to meet the diverse needs of its users. This paper explores the use
of intelligent techniques, in particular constraint satisfaction methods, to de-
velop adaptive E-services that provide customized and factually consistent in-
formation to users. We model the generation of customized information content
as a constraint satisfaction problem--a solution is derived by (a) satisfying
user-model constraints with information document selection constraints; and (b)
establishing inter-document consistency when dynamically combining hetero-
geneous information documents. The work is applied in an E-Healthcare set-
