Usage of Semantic Web Technologies (Web-3.0) Aiming to Facilitate the Utilisation of Computerized Algorithmic Medicine in Clinical Practice
Introduction: Despite the proven benefits of algorithmic medicine in healthcare and the plethora of implemented medical algorithms solving Medical Computational Problems (MCPs) which are available on the web , their usage is limited in everyday clinical practice. This is mainly due to poor organisation of MCP information, difficulties in MCP search and the missing parameters in the description of medical cases, making their management by a single algorithm rather impossible. In this paper ...
