Knowledge-based temporal abstraction in diabetes therapy



Knowledge-based temporal abstraction in diabetes therapy



Medinfo. Medinfo 8 Pt 1: 852-856



We suggest a general framework for solving the task of creating abstract, interval-based concepts from time-stamped clinical data. We refer to this problem-solving framework as the knowledge-based temporal-abstraction (KBTA) method. The KBTA method emphasizes explicit representation, acquisition, maintenance, reuse, and the sharing of knowledge required for abstraction of time-oriented clinical data. We describe the subtasks into which the KBTA method decomposes its task, the problem-solving mechanisms that solve these subtasks, and the knowledge necessary for instantiating these mechanisms in a particular clinical domain. We have implemented the KBTA method in the RESUME system and have applied it to the task of monitoring the care of insulin-dependent diabetics.
