Experiments on action rules, described in the previous section, did not consider temporal dependencies between patient’s visits (that is, at what relative point in timeline particular actions were taken). On the other hand, it would be effective to search for temporal dependencies between particular treatment actions and their observable results in the form of changed score denoting tinnitus severity. New approach should allow to assess treatment action effectiveness in temporal terms and consider their sequence. For example, some actions might take effect after some time elapse and not be effective in the short-term.
