Abstract [en]
Clinical investigation activities are complex processes, which are situated, emergent and directed by the individual need of the patient, but also restricted or enhanced by the available resources at different points in the process. For the purpose of creating a system which provides support throughout the investigation process, i.e. functioning as a cognitive tool for the user, the clinical investigation process needs to be assessed and formalized. The presented work is based on analyzes of the domain knowledge and case studies of investigations of actual patients and provides a conceptual model for a clinical investigation activity. The framework of cultural-historical activity theory was used for the interpretation of the data and the model is used for identifying which actions are appropriate for formalization in a decisionsupport system.
