Description of the product
Modern medicine offers very diverse treatment approaches, which are rapidly evolving through intensive research. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult for healthcare professionals to stay up-to-date and find the best solution from many options for each patient. A medical expert system, like a human expert, helps to find solutions to medical problems.
Keystone of an expert systems is a knowledge base that represents expert knowledge, such as how to treat a disease. Since this knowledge is often only available in the form of publications or as results of clinical studies, it must be consolidated and converted into a formal knowledge model. During the use of the expert system, this model is then applied to input values, e.g. current blood levels. As a result, the expert system can offer information visualizations up to concrete recommendations for actions.
In the project OnkoLeit a software product of the same name is developed, which supports the treating physician with respect to diagnosis and therapy decisions for oncological diseases.
