How Much Structure? - The Problem of Chronic Disease Management Decision SupportFri 16.11.2001, 10:15, 60 minutes
AbstractThere are distinct opportunities in providing expert advising agents to help General Practice physicians in devising care plans for the chronically ill. However, such agents are nontrivial to devise and require structured input on which to operate. Many other opportunities lie in using patient-centred secure Internet technology simply to facilitate
BioAssoc. Prof. Warren is Director of the Advanced Computing Research Centre at the University of South Australia. He received his PhD in Information Systems in 1992 from the University of Maryland. For the past 10 years he has increasingly focused on the problems of health informatics, particularly the design of clinical workstations for General Practice physicians. His particular interest is the role of non-anthropomorphic agency and decision support that integrates with conventional information processing (i.e., a user shouldn't have to go to a separate decision support system or expert system to get help). He has led the development of a number of health information systems, his most recent being
