Hospitexte: towards a document-based hypertextual electronic medical record

Hospitexte: towards a document-based hypertextual electronic medical record

Proceedings. AMIA Symposium 1999: 713-717

The patient record is a repository for knowledge about a patient. Work in Artificial Intelligence and knowledge representation has evidenced the intrinsic difficulty of formalizing knowledge for computer processing. It is therefore not a surprise that most attempts at computerizing the patient record have only had a limited degree of success or applicability. We claim that this is due to the fact that medicine is an empirical domain, and thus fundamentally resists formalization. Therefore, the only way medical knowledge can be fully expressed is through natural languages which is indeed what clinicians actually use. We proposed and designed an electronic medical record which adheres to this hypothesis and where structured documents play a prominent role.
