This paper presents work towards constructing a generic information model for comorbidities management. This involves the following conceptual steps: (a) develop an information model and ontology of the management of disease and comorbidities based on ground medical knowledge; (b) enrich the generic model to reflect current-state-of-the-art medical evidence, which will determine in detail the connections and conditions for such connections for comorbid progression pathways; (c) instantiate the enriched model for each specific patient, coupling patient personal information of a variety of sources. The model is based on the UMLS semantic network. Our specific aim is to address the medical domain of cardio-renal disease and comorbidities. The ultimate goal is to provide the means for patients with comorbidities to take an active role in care processes, including self-care and shared decision making, and also to support medical professionals in understanding and treating comorbidities via an integrative approach.
