Abstract

This paper introduces a methodology to retrieve information from medical databases based on intentions and viewpoints of retrievers, who retrieve some information from databases. The methodology above helps a retriever to organize his/her intention and viewpoint and to make a proper query based on the viewpoint. It also helps a retriever to record historical data of retrieving with intentions. This paper introduces a series of ontologies to organize a relationship between intentions, viewpoints and keywords that are used to make queries and each of that has interpretations based on viewpoints of retrievers, and explains the methodology based on the ontologies.
