Abstract

The paper presents the results of the development of the knowledge base for the HEARTFAID platform. The means and methods used to collect, systematize and formalize medical knowledge, as well as to test the developed knowledge representation are described. The descriptive part of the knowledge base is realized as an ontology which conceptualizes the heart failure medical domain. The procedural part of the knowledge base is realized through sets of production rules. The procedural knowledge covers the tasks of heart failure diagnosis, severity assessment, treatment process, medication prescription and dosage, medication contraindications, prognosis estimation, and acute decompensation detection. Finally, medical plans are used to present medical actionable knowledge. Currently they are used only to systemize procedural knowledge development process but they present a challenge for the future work in the field of medical knowledge representation.
