Design of a Well-Protected Patient Record Unit for Multi-centre Knowledge-Based System CLINAID
In this paper, we describe the high level design of a general, modular and comprehensive Patient record unit (PRU) that can interface with two distinct environments simultaneously and provide for their mutual secure local or remote interaction. One environment is formed by a community of distributed interacting expert systems, or a multicentre concurrent Knowledge-Based System (KBS). The other environment consists of a community of data bases distributed locally or connected via a remote communication network. The paper is concluded with the description of the way in which the PRU is integrated within a multicentre, multi-context and multi-environment KBS CLinaid. Further relevant references to this approach are provided.
