Download Computer-based Medical Guidelines and Protocols: A Primer by P. Lucas PDF

By P. Lucas

This publication brings jointly effects from diverse branches of machine technology (in specific, synthetic intelligence), scientific informatics and drugs to check leading edge ways to computer-based instruction modeling, verification and interpretation. varied equipment were constructed to help the improvement, deployment, upkeep and use of evidence-based directions, utilizing strategies from man made intelligence, software program engineering, clinical informatics and formal equipment. Such tools hire varied illustration formalisms and computational techniques.As the guideline-related examine spans quite a lot of study groups, a accomplished integration of the result of those groups used to be missing. it's the goal of this ebook to fill this hole. it's the first publication of its sort that in part has the character of a textbook. The e-book involves components. the 1st half includes 9 chapters which jointly supply a entire evaluate of an important clinical and computer-science points of medical directions and protocols. the second one a part of the booklet contains chapters which are prolonged models of chosen papers that have been initially submitted to the ECAI-2006 workshop 'AI concepts in future health Care: Evidence-based guidance and Protocols'. those chapters will give you the reader specific information regarding genuine learn within the region via top researchers.IOS Press is a world technology, technical and scientific writer of top quality books for lecturers, scientists, and pros in all fields. a number of the components we put up in: -Biomedicine -Oncology -Artificial intelligence -Databases and knowledge structures -Maritime engineering -Nanotechnology -Geoengineering -All features of physics -E-governance -E-commerce -The wisdom economic system -Urban experiences -Arms keep watch over -Understanding and responding to terrorism -Medical informatics -Computer Sciences

Example text

Such an action in PROforma usually exists of issuing a message to a user or calling an external program through a predefined Application Programming Interface (API). Examples are ‘”give ibuprofen, 10 mg”‘ that shows a message to a clinical user or ‘call(print(leaflet1))’ that executes an external procedure to print a leaflet. In PROforma, actions are always atomic and are not decomposable. Enquiries are used to acquire various kinds of information, such as clinical or administrative information.

In Asbru, each plan body contains a number of subplans until a non-decomposable plan (also called Action) is encountered. Although the Arden Syntax supports a form of nesting by calling other rules in the Action slot, there is no general control flow that controls these invocations. All approaches support the concept of referenced subguidelines. , ‘if-then’ rules such as MLMs). EON, PROforma and Asbru also support the use of goals and intentions to formally specify a guideline on a higher level of abstraction.

In summary: to enable living guidelines, they must be developed in a more structured way. Formal methods can be of help here. This will be an important first step to enhance further computer-based support of guidelines and protocols. The Protocure project presents our experience with applying formal methods to medical guidelines. Figure 5. Living Guideline Cycle 20 K.
