This work presents an approach combining multiple electronic patient records (EPR) to a self-learning fall risk assessment tool. We utilised the agentperspective to model the system, to address privacy issues and to evaluate different distributed information fusion and opinion aggregation techniques towards there applicability to the addressed domain. Each agent represents a single patient negotiating about unknown fall risk influences in order to adapt the fall-risk assessment tool to the population under care. In addition, we will outline the planned real-world case study.
