Guidelines for care are growing rapidly in significance for all health care practitioners. The greater the number and complexity of these guidelines, the greater is the need for computer applications to manage, organize and disseminate them.

In this paper, we consider what is required to achieve such a representation. We identify features of guideline applications… CONTINUE READING
