Abstract

In healthcare area, plenty of existing expert knowledge is used to support decision making. Representation of the knowledge becomes an important problem. Especially, how it can be effectively used for reasoning as part of the decision making systems. Ontologies are commonly used for describing information system design or generating and validating system components. In this study we demonstrate a three stage approach to developing cardiovascular surgery ontology and then to making use of use that ontology to design an ontology-based cardiovascular clinical research information system. By using ontology approaches to designing and implementing the system we can convert ‘pure data’ back to ‘reality’.
