Cluster analysis is one way of data mining from large amounts of information. Being able to perform series of analyses, varying clinical criteria and requests, expected results of the clustering might be truly rewarding. Instead of having a few hypotheses prepared and tested, medical experts can be surprised by obtaining a set of hypotheses to further validate and work on.
Internet technologies enable a substantial flexibility that can be taken advantage of when implementing a Web-based tool. Division of Medical Informatics together with Linkoping Heart Center of the Linkoping University is developing procedures for multivariate clustering within the Web-based AssistMe1 system.
