Reusable patterns for modelling clinical processes
“Transforming narrative guidelines into a computer-interpretable formalism is still a bottleneck in the development of decision-support systems. Our goal was to support this step by providing computer-interpretable templates for representing guideline knowledge using clinical abstractions that are appropriate for particular guideline sub-domains. Guideline sub-domains such as screening and immunization can suggest repeatable clinical abstractions which can be structured as design templates to support encoding in a computer-interpretable format.”
Adapted from “Design patterns for clinical guidelines” by Mor Peleg and Samson Tu (Artificiail Intelligence in Medicine 2009).
For this section we invite submission of templates that structure significant clinical guidelines in a generic form for determining whether they can be reused and applied to produce computer-interpretable representations which can be reused in different applications.
