Abstract

Traditionally, after diagnosed with chronic disease, most patients used to have to trust the doctor in front of them, even if it was just a physician they met for the first time. However, in a short period of time, physicians can only provide illness-centered treatment decisions, often ignoring other patient’s concerns and failing to make personalized decisions. Simultaneously, patients are unable to make judgement or wise decisions because of their unusual emotional and psychological stress. Therefore, patients must be properly empowered as soon as possible to overcome these barriers. Empowered patients should have the right and ability to actively participate in their treatment decision-making. This paper aims to identify the role of intelligent systems in patient empowerment. In addition, this paper will clarify how to use intelligent systems to effectively empower patients with chronic diseases in limited time. Research questions will also include whether current intelligent systems provide patients with sufficient knowledge, reliable information and accessible tools or resources to support their treatment decisions. The results will provide other researchers and healthcare providers what patients need and where are the gaps in the empowering process with intelligent systems.
