Empirical research; health e-portal; breast cancer e-portal prototype.


This paper presents an empirical research that realizes a previous research of a conceptual breast-cancer e-portal model with Arabic content. The paper starts with briefing the previous research, after that, it highlights the gaps need to be bridged and the problems need to be solved. A real development of an e-portal prototype is done for achieving the research goal. This e-portal prototype has applied the conceptual model of the previous research.
