The consideration of context information in physicians search for medical knowledge and information offers good prospects to improve the qual-ity of the delivered search results from heterogeneous eResources. Within the scope of this contribution the authors introduce their information logistic ap-proach towards a context-based information supply for physicians. Basically, this approach encloses a comprehensive context model, which is divided into the four sub models process, clinical case, physician and environment. The prototypical implementation of a context application uses an excerpt from the model. The application is based on a context middleware and was used as a basis for an empiric validation of the approach during practical tests and two laboratory experiments. The contri bution concludes with an outlook on future needs for research regarding context-based information supply and information logistics in general.
