Computer-Interpretable Guidelines have been associated with a higher integration of standard practices in the daily context of health care institutions. The Clinical Decision Support Systems that deliver these machine-interpretable recommendations usually follow a Q&A style of communication, retrieving information from the user or a clinical repository and performing reasoning upon it, based on the rules from Clinical Practice Guidelines. However, these systems are limited in the reach they are… 

Enhancing decision making by providing a unified system for computer‐interpretable guideline management

This comprehensive approach provides a step‐by‐step assistant for health care professionals in the form of an agenda of activities that detects drug interactions when they are prescribed simultaneously and applies a mitigation algorithm to select possible and conflict‐free alternatives.

Automatically Identifying Drug Conflicts in Clinical Practice Guidelines

This paper presents a solution that represents CPGs as Computer-Interpretable Guidelines (CIGs) and allows for the automatic drug conflict identification and resolution and provides clinical recommendations in an agenda, being capable of identifying drug interactions when drugs are prescribed simultaneously and provide conflict-free alternatives.



Webifying the Computerized Execution of Clinical Practice Guidelines

The CompGuide framework is presented, a web-based and service-oriented platform for the execution of Computer-Interpretable Guidelines, which allows remote guideline execution with data centralization and is more suitable for a work environment where physicians are mobile and not bound to a machine.

Decision Support Provided by a Temporally Oriented Health Care Assistant

A web-based system that acts as a health care assistant to health care professionals, combining the roles of focusing attention and providing patient-specific advice, provides a comprehensive representation of temporal constraints in Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Transforming Medical Advice into Clinical Activities for Patient Follow-Up

The delivery of Computer-Interpretable Guidelines occurs mainly in the form of tools following a Q&A strategy for the interaction with users, but currently available tools do not possess control mechanisms to ensure the fulfilment of clinical recommendations.

Representation of Clinical Practice Guideline Components in OWL

CompGuide is a Computer-Interpretable Guideline model developed in Ontology Web Language that offers support for administrative information concerning a guideline, workflow procedures, and the definition of clinical and temporal constraints.

SAGEDesktop: An Environment for Testing Clinical Practice Guidelines

A tool called SAGEDesktop is developed for the testing of electronic clinical practice guidelines and provides a complete development environment in which precise and robust electronicclinical practice guidelines can be encoded and tested.

The Spock System: Developing a Runtime Application Engine for Hybrid-Asbru Guidelines

This work proposes an innovative approach to guideline application, which capitalizes on the Digital electronic Guidelines Library (DeGeL), and includes a new hybrid model for incremental specification of free-text guidelines, using several intermediate representations.
