V. V. Gribova, R. I. Kovalev, D. B. Okun Specialized Shell for Intelligent Systems of Prescribing Medication


The paper analyzes the existing decision support systems for medication prescription. A detailed survey of their functionality and implementation methods was given. The main principles of development and architecture of an intelligent medical decision support system are described. This system is implemented as a specialized shell. The specialized shell is based on the use of the ontological approach, in accordance with which all information resources - knowledge and data bases are formed on the basis of ontologies. The unique features of the system, as well as information and software components that are part of it, are described. In this paper the examples presented demonstrate all the proposed solutions.
