This work presents an approach combining multiple electronic patient records (EPR) to a self-learning fall risk assessment tool. We utilized the agent-perspective 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.
