Abstract: The exponential growth of data coupled with a rapid increase of service demands in healthcare contexts today requires a robust framework enabled by information technology (IT) solutions as well as real-time service handling in order to ensure superior decision making and successful healthcare outcomes. Contemporaneous with the challenges facing healthcare, we are witnessing the development of very sophisticated intelligent tools and technologies. Therefore, it would appear to be prudent to investigate the possibility of applying such tools and technologies into various healthcare contexts to facilitate better risk detection and support superior decision making. This study is exploratory in nature and endeavours to explore the main components, barriers, issues and requirements to design and develop an intelligent risk detection framework to be applied to healthcare contexts. The following serves to do this in the context of orthopaedics, total hip and knee arthroplasty and congenital heart disease.
