Integration of Dynamic Documentation Knowledge Services into Siemens Framework
This project is carried out in collaboration with the Clinical Knowledge Management Research Team at Manchester. The team, originated by Professor Alan Rector, has a thirty-year history of leading innovations in clinical user interfaces, development of health terminology/ontologies, and medial records. The Clinical Knowledge Management Research Team and Siemens Medical Solutions have an established collaboration to develop the next generation of context-sensitive clinical systems and associated knowledge management technologies. The core of the methodology is built around the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and related Semantic technologies, which are used to manage context, merge content, and implement associations and rules.
An initial version of the Knowledge Management Environment has been designed and developed in the previous phase of the project, and the current project is focused on integration with Siemens’ Hospital Information System, Sorian Clinicals. The project will also explore the role of data analytics, including text/association mining, statistics or probability modelling for knowledge acquisition.
In addition to Prof Rector, the project involves Drs Bijan Parsia (PI) and Goran Nenadic (CoI), with a team of six clinical knowledge engineers and software developers.
