Abstract

Representation of clinical practice guidelines is a critical issue for computer-based guideline development, implementation and evaluation. We studied eight types of computer-based guideline representation models. Typical primitives for these models include decisions, actions, patient states and execution states. Temporal constraints and nesting are important aspects of guideline structure representation. Integration of guidelines with electronic medical records can be facilitated by the introduction of formal models of patient data. Patient states and execution states are closely related to one another. Data collection, decision, patient state and intervention are four basic steps in a guideline's logic flow.
