Abstract : The prospective home-care management will probably of- fer intelligent conversational assistants for supporting patients at home through natural language interfaces. Homecare assistance in natural lan- guage, HomeNL, is a proof-of-concept dialogue system for the manage- ment of patients with hypertension. It follows up a conversation with a patient in which the patient is able to take the initiative. HomeNL pro- cesses natural language, makes an internal representation of the patients' contributions, interprets sentences by reasoning about their meaning on the basis of a medical-knowledge representation and responds appropri- ately. HomeNL's aim is to provide a laboratory for studying natural language processing (NLP) and intelligent dialogues in clinical domains.
