Personalization of health information related to a specific patient’s characteristics would be an effective means of providing patient-centric health care. Further, it would allow the patient to be both better-educated about their specific condition and better able to make informed decisions. This paper contains a description of a method of providing such personalized health-related materials in one area of plastic surgery. The paper contains an outline of the approach, a description of the tools developed to date, and a design for an authoring tool that is being created to support the domain expert in acquiring and organizing health information.
