I’m a Dutch clinical informatics PDEng student. As part of my studies I am currently designing (and hopefully developing) a decision support tool to be used in a healthcare department.
What I would like to do is to translate a natural language clincal guideline (in the format: if patient had this in the past, then advice this/perform this) into a computer interpretable guideline, which can then be used in a decision support tool. Of course I could just program if-then-else-rules in any language, but I rather use an standardized approach for this, with reusable models, concepts etc.
During my preliminary research I’ve read about a few languages (e.g. FHIR clinical reasoning module, Proforma, Asbru etc.) that could do that, but openEHR (with GDL) appeals to me the most because of it’s well-thought-out approach and available tools.
As a start I’ve been following this guideline: GDL2 Guideline Tutorial I – BMI – Guideline Definition Language (GDL)
I’ve followed every step and double checked everything, but unfortunately I do not get any Execution results. Does anyone have the same issue or knows what I am doing wrong? See image below and attached guideline file:
Once I’ve this working. What tools could I use to execute the guidelines? Ideally I would integrate this in a Python application, is that possible?
