ABSTRACT Healthcare decision making demands the systematic integration of knowledge from multiple sources, such as clinical guidelines,
clinical pathways, knowledge of practitioners and so on. We present a semantic web based approach for synthesizing health
knowledge through the semantic modeling of healthcare knowledge as ontologies and reasoning over the ontologies to derive
a morphed knowledge object. We demonstrate the application of our approach by generating morphed knowledge about prostate
cancer clinical pathways.
