Conceptual Model as a Tool for Assessing Knowledge in Decision-Support Development
2007 (English)In: MEDINFO 2007 : Poster proceedings of the 12th World Congress on Health (Medical) Informatics, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
In the development of a decision-support system the domain knowledge as well as the target work environment need to be assessed in order to capture the knowledge to be integrated in and provided by the system. This work describes the model used for the assessment, which is based on Activity theory and case studies of patients investigated concerning suspected dementia. The purpose is to investigate to what extent the theory is useful for the assessment and for transforming the informal knowledge into formal descriptions for knowledge representation and design of interaction. The resulting structure provides the data and their sorts and qualities, the tools that are used in assessing the data, the actions of transforming the data and contextual factors such as who is responsible for a certain action. The semi-formal structure can be transformed into a formal structure for representation by using the structure to identify requirements for formalisation languages.
