KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT FOR CLINICAL DECISION ANALYSIS

Project Details

Description

The research described in this proposal begins with completion and formal
evaluation of MIDAS "a computer program designed to automatically
construct decision models from an underlying medical knowledge base". The
capabilities of MIDAS will be extended to knowledge-based construction
of Markov decision models. A second project will develop a comprehensive
knowledge management scheme for the problem of pulmonary disease in AIDS.
This scheme will use a knowledge base structured according to knowledge
needed to perform a decision analysis. It will incorporate summaries of
relevant data, sources and quality of data and links to the original
sources. This knowledge management scheme will be deployed in the
hospital and evaluated in a group of medical residents at Robert Wood
Johnson University Hospital.
