Abstract

We report on the development of a decision support ontology developed in the Web ontology language OWL-DL (description logic). The ontology is combined within a preoperative risk assessment software system with a DL reasoner in order to provide a number of clinical decision support functionalities, including risk assessment, recommended tests and recommended clinical precaution protocols.
