For a medical treatment with IoT-based facilities, physicians always have to pay much more attentions to the raw medical records of target patients instead of directly making medical advice, conclusions or diagnosis from their experiences. Because the medical records in IoT-based Hospital Information System (HIS) are dispersedly obtained from distributed devices such as tablet computer, personal digital assistant, automated analyzer and other medical devices, they are raw, simple, weak-content and massive. Such medical records cannot be used for further analyzing and decision supporting due to that they are collected in a weak-semantic manner. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to enrich IoT-based medical records by linking them with the knowledge in Linked Open Data (LOD). A case study is conducted on a real-world IoT-based HIS system in association with our approach, the experimental results show that medical records in the local HIS system are significantly enriched and useful for healthcare analysis and decision making, and further demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of our approach for knowledge accessing.
