Temporal-Abstraction Mechanisms in Management of Clinical Protocols

Reference: Shahar, Y.; Tu, S.; & Musen, M. Temporal-Abstraction Mechanisms in Management of Clinical Protocols. Washington, DC, 1991.

Abstract: We have identified several general temporal-abstraction mechanisms needed for reasoning about time-stamped data, such as are needed in management of patients being treated on clinical protocols: simple temporal abstraction (a mechanism for abstracting several parameter values into one class), temporal inference (a mechanisms for inferring sound logical conclusions over a single interval or two meeting intervals), and temporal interpolation (a mechanism for bridging non-meeting temporal intervals). Making explicit the knowledge required for temporal abstractions supports the acquisition of planning knowledge, the identification of clinical problems, and the formulation of clinical-management-plan revisions.
