MLHIM: An interesting post +Farzad Jahedi though I am not sure that Watson is much of a solution for the problem. It is not at the point of care of very many, if any people.
However, if this subject is of interest to you then you will find several posts on this issue in the gplus.to/HealthcareIT community as well as semantic interoperability being the foundation subject of the first three episodes of Healthcare IT Live!http://goo.gl/dTtTC
Rebecca Fein: I met one of the Watson research team members. It's an interesting project. I really liked your post, I enjoyed the post, as I am interested in how these ideas work in the developing world. I understand that Malaysia has an amazing healthcare system.
