Building evidence graph for clinical decision support
Evidence-based medicine intends to optimize clinical decision making by using evidence. Semantic query answering could help to find the most relevant evidence. However, at point of care, it still lacks time for clinicians to do literature study. In this poster, we propose to build an evidence graph for clinical decision support, in which an evidence ontology is defined with extension of SWRL rules. On top of this graph, we do evidence query and evidence fusion to generate the ranking list of decision options. Our prototype implementation of the evidence graph demonstrates its assistance to decision making, by combining a variety of knowledge-driven and data-driven decision services.
