Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) play an important role in improving the quality of care and patient outcomes. Although several machine-readable representations of practice guidelines implemented with semantic web technologies have been presented, there is no implementation to represent uncertainty with respect to activity graphs in clinical practice guidelines. In this paper, we are exploring a Bayesian Network(BN) approach for representing the uncertainty in CPGs based on ontologies. Based… CONTINUE READING
