A general framework for building patient monitoring systems
This paper describes a general framework designed to assist the physician in the management of patients long-term monitoring. It exploits a temporal model based on the temporal primitives time-point and interval and provides powerful mechanisms performing temporal abstractions and temporal reasoning that can be used to assess the patient clinical evolution in various medical domains. The framework is integrated into a clinical workstation providing several tools designed to assist the clinical staff in the management of the patients records and in the definition of the domain-specific knowledge.
