Automatable Clinical Guidelines: ACOG example

Clinical Guide Lines are the knowledge sources of modern evidence-based medicine and Clinical Decision Support (CDS) systems. But what if the clinical guideline document could not only be consumable by practitioners but by computers systems as well? The same document, offering clear interpretation and course of actions to both care providers and the computer systems supporting them.

This is the vision being pursued by a new community of practice within the Object Management Group (OMG) Health Domain Taskforce. The group has already produced a first version of a “Field Guide” aimed at organizations producing, consuming and deploying such “Sharable Clinical Guide Lines.”

Early community contributing organizations include the Veteran Health Affaires, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), Intermountain, Mayo Clinic, and many others. Come and hear how the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is leading the way in applying these recommendations and get insight on how your organization could benefit from such techniques.

A Hypothyroid in Pregnancy Guideline example and its automated version implementing the CDS Hooks and FHIR standards will be demonstrated based on Trisotech software. Trisotech offers a technological platform automatically transforming clinical guide lines into cloud services that can be consumed directly into legacy eHRs or within modern CDS apps.

Decision Automation using Models, Services and Dashboards

Published on Sept 21, 2018

Presentation on Decision Automation at DecsionCamp 2018 by Denis Gagné, Trisotech


The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) offers the perfect solution to specifying Business Decisions. Symbolic and sub-symbolic artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches can effectively be used jointly within DMN, delivering explainable decision automation that is desired if not mandatory in any business context. The resulting DMN Decision Models are also the perfect architecture for the creation of decision support dashboards.

In this session we demonstrate how line of business people can define business decisions that are explainable, auditable, and traceable. These business decisions can be assembled and consumed as services via a modern platform API architecture and visualized via graphical dashboards. The resulting dashboards help visualize information and knowledge that that are critical for the operations of any type of business.
