|Title:||Models and inference methods for clinical systems: A principled approach|
Rector, Alan L.
|Keywords:||Medical records - Data processing|

|Abstract:||Previous papers have argued for the existence of three different models in many clinical information systems – for the medical record, for inference in guidelines, and for concepts and re-usable facts. This paper presents a principled approach to deciding which information belongs in each model based on the nature of the queries or inference to be performed: necessary or contingent, open or closed world, algorithmic vs heuristic. It then discusses an important class of systems – “ontologically indexed knowledge bases” – and issues of metadata within this framework.|
