Attached with this e-mail is an AMIA submission which discusses the use of
ontologies and rules in the context of representing a diabetes guideline.


Pending acceptance at AMIA 2006, the paper can be referenced as a Tech Report,
CIRD, Partners HealthCare, Tech Report No. CIRD-20060322-01.


We propose that introducing ontologies in the context of rules in clinical
guideline context has a more significant impact on knowledge change and

Maintenance and total cost of ownership of rule bases as opposed to execution


Look forward to comments and feedback..

Subject: [HCLS-ACPP] July 18 Tcon Minutes and "use of rules with ontology in
semantic web" tutorial session in next Tcon on July 25


Dear All 

Here is the minutes of our Tcon on July 18 


At ACPP, we recognize the need to use rules when representing medical and
operational knowledge in adaptable clinical protocols and pathways.  Not all
facts and relationship can be adequately represented in OWL ontology, especially
when taking into consideration of decidability and efficiency of reasoning.   

In our next Tcon, Chimezie will present a tutorial on using rules with ontology
and share his experiences with various semantic web reasoners.  Please join us
for the discussion on July 25, 1-2pm. 

Kind regards.
