REPRESENTATION AND EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT OF MULTI-VERSION CLINICAL GUIDELINES

Fabio Grandi

Abstract

While the world wide web user is suffering from the disease caused by information overload, for which personalization is one of the treatments which works, a physician accessing web-based clinical guideline repositories is not immune from contagion. This seems a good reason to prescribe a personalization treatment also to the professional user of a computerized clinical guideline library. To this end, we apply to clinical guidelines solutions we previously developed for norm texts in the legal domain, and show how multi-version representation capabilities and personalization query facilities can be added to their management.
