Abstract

General technical challenges in providing a standardized semantic, structural, and conceptual foundation for comprehensive Clinical Decision Support (CDS) are introduced. The prerequisite requirements for a) standard representations of domain data, b) standard vocabularies to unambiguously define and declare domain concepts, and c) an expressive description logic syntax with which to articulate and encode domain knowledge are examined with reference to the use of CDS in automating Clinical Practice Guidelines. Semantic web, uncertainty and other cognitive technologies are discussed in the context of improving the reliability and adaptability of clinical guidelines in real-world scenarios. Select opportunities for incorporating standards and technology capabilities available in non-medical communities are highlighted when appropriate.
