Modern clinical information system developers recognize the need to associate temporal information with clinical data. However, specific clinical systems capture different temporal features using a variety of data modeling techniques. Two commonly used methods to represent temporal information are point-based events and interval-based durations. We recently implemented a rule-based expert system for drug dose monitoring on three clinical information systems. The expert system requires both… CONTINUE READING
