Abstract:Computer Interpretable Guidelines (CIG) are an emerging area of research, to support medical decision making through evidence-based recommendations. However, new challenges in the data management field have to be faced, to integrate CIG management with a proper treatment of patient data, and of other forms of medical knowledge (e.g., causal and behavioral knowledge). In this position paper, we summarize a proposal for a research agenda that, in our opinion, can lead to a significant advancement in the field. The goal of the work is to provide suitable models and reasoning methodologies to cope with the aforementioned aspects, and to properly integrate them for medical decision support. Achieving such a goal requires advances in data management, and, in particular, in the treatment of indeterminate valid-time data in relational databases, of temporal abstraction on time series, of case retrieval on time series, of design-time and run-time model-based verification of guidelines, of case-based reasoning, of non-monotonic logics, of formal ontologies, of probabilistic graphical models (Bayesian Networks and Influence Diagrams).
