Knowledge Modeling in the Health Care Domain to Support Software Development & Maintenance

Thomas Reichherzer, John Coffey, Bilal Gonen, Irad Gillett

Abstract

This article contains a description of a knowledge elicitation effort and representation pertaining to the modeling of conceptual knowledge in the health care field. The project has the goal of building a conceptual model of data in the Military Health System Data Repository, a large DoD/VA aggregation of databases that can be used in the implementation of software. The goal is to create a just-in-time conceptual model of the data to facilitate software development and foster software developer understanding of the domain.
