Abstract

Although many expert systems or decision support systems have been developed, used, and evaluated to some extent, the full benefits of this advanced computer technology await their wide use in the health care system. Major obstacles (see also Chapter 1) to the wide dissemination of decision support systems exist, e.g.:
  • Limited dissemination and completeness of electronic medical records

  • Limited integration of existing sources of data

  • Limited integration of clinical data with the natural workflow

  • Lack of a standard vocabulary

  • Lack of proven decision support systems
