Using GLIF and GLEE to Facilitate Knowledge Management in Development of Clinical Decision Support Systems

Medinfo 2007: Proceedings of the 12th World Congress on Health (Medical) Informatics; Building Sustainable Health Systems

Abstract: Effective knowledge management is a critical challenge to development of clinical decision support systems (CDSSs). We have been using the GuideLine Interchange Format (GLIF) and the Guideline Execution Engine (GLEE) to facilitate knowledge modelling, adaptation, and validation for CDSSs that address a variety of healthcare problems. Based on a review of case studies, we synthesized three major functions of GLIF and GLEE during this process: (1) improving communication between CDSS developers and domain experts, (2) facilitating fast prototyping of CDSSs, and (3) providing multi-stage system validation. We argue that development of CDSSs should start from analyses of user needs and identification of knowledge sources, followed by an evolving process with multiple rounds of conceptualization, encoding, simulation, and evaluation. Our review has shown that GLIF and GLEE can be used effectively to facilitate this process.
