Managing Episodes, Cases, Concepts, and Rules--An Integration Approach for Medical Problem Solving

Wolfgang Oertel, Uwe Petersohn

The paper presents the knowledge organization and problem solving in MEDIUS, a medical information and support system developed for application in the domain of pain diseases. The system uses information that is permanently collected during the treatment of patients as well as generic medical background knowledge. It has been installed in a ward of a hospital and is in really practical use. The paper shows the application of case-based reasoning in combination with concept- and rule-based methods, their mapping to a data base system, as well as its integration within a network environment. The results can be generalized easily to medical treatment or problem solving at all.
