ProtoVIEW : a workstation for the use of clinical algorithms
In this paper a prototype of a clinical protocol supporting information system called ProtoVIEW is described. The system was evaluated in a non-clinical setting by 13 surgeons. Although many issues concerning protocol presentation and retrieval still have to be resolved, it is concluded that a computerized protocol management system can be of use for surgeons in clinical practice.
