Knowledge Based and Decision Support Systems
To use data for decisions, knowledge is needed. Decisions are related to very different entities to act upon: they may concern single human beings (e.g. patients), single care units or, last but not least, the interaction of such units within regional, national or international systems. Decisions can refer to aims, then being of strategic importance, or to means and ways, then reflecting tactical issues. Decisions will relate to the central health issues or might be dealing more with the human, social or economic prerequisites of production.
