Abstract

The Internet has become a popular venue for people to search for and discuss topics related to health. We present a method to extract information from informal health message groups to extract social networking information about the drug regimens people use and the communities people form. We present preliminary results from a visualization tool enabling health care professionals to create hypotheses about drug regimens within a particular community. We also present a second visualization tool enabling people in a health conversational community to find other people who are most similar to them based on the drugs they take.
