NOTE: This is an unreviewed Preprint
Warning: This is a unreviewed preprint (What is a preprint?). Readers are warned that the document has not been peer-reviewed by expert/patient reviewers or an academic editor, may contain misleading claims, and is likely to undergo changes before final publication, if accepted, or may have been rejected/withdrawn (a note "no longer under consideration" will appear above).
Peer-review me: Readers with interest and expertise are encouraged to sign up as peer-reviewer, if the paper is within an open peer-review period (in this case, a "Peer-Review Me" button to sign up as reviewer is displayed above). All preprints currently open for review are listed here. Outside of the formal open peer-review period we encourage you to tweet about the preprint.
Citation: Please cite this preprint only for review purposes or for grant applications and CVs (if you are the author).
Final version: If our system detects a final peer-reviewed "version of record" (VoR) published in any journal, a link to that VoR will appear below. Readers are then encourage to cite the VoR instead of this preprint.
Settings: If you are the author, you can login and change the preprint display settings, but the preprint URL/DOI is supposed to be stable and citable, so it should not be removed once posted.
Submit: To post your own preprint, simply submit to any JMIR journal, and choose the appropriate settings to expose your submitted version as preprint.
XML Data and knowledge encoding structure for a web and mobile antenatal clinical decision support system
Displeasure with clinical decision support systems (CDSS) functionality is considered the primary challenge in CDSS development. A major difficulty in CDSS design is matching the functionality to correct and actual clinical workflow. Computer-Interpretable guidelines (CIG) are used to formalize medical knowledge in clinical practice guidelines (CPG) in a computable language, however, existing CIG frameworks require a specific interpreter for each language, hindering the ease of implementation and interoperability. This has led the authors to propose a different approach in terms of how clinical knowledge and data is represented and change the clinician’s perception of a CDSS. This approach was originally intended to create a readable and minimal syntax for a web CDSS for antenatal care guidelines, with improved human-computer interaction and enhanced usability by aligning the system behavior with clinical workflow.
