Semantic Layer Agent (SLA). It is responsible for: (i) Maintaining the user profile and local context information in the Local Semantic Information (LSI) knowledge base, and (ii) interacting with the Central Matching System (CMS) (that is in a central server) whenever needed to process user queries. Personal Assistant (PA). It is used to: (i) Dispatch information between the rest of the agents acting as an intelligent intermediary, (ii) mediate whenever needed on behalf of the user to facilitate interaction and support limited autonomy in certain use cases, (ii) maintain relevant information to improve interaction with the user through machine learning.

This situation makes the quality of that care being eroded from the clinical point of view and a sense of lack of follow-up care received by the patients.
