    ABSTRACT: The development of data-intensive systems in medical domains has received increasing attention in recent years. In this work we present in depth some parts of ACUDES (Architecture for Intensive Care Units Decision Support) in which traditional techniques for managing and representing time have been integrated with a temporal diagnosis task in a decision support platform. ACUDES has been designed to manage the information regarding patient evolution and to describe the patients evolution in terms of the temporal sequence diseases suffered. These functionalities are supported by an ontology which simplifies the knowledge acquisition and sharing, while guaranteeing the semantic consistency of patients’ evolution data. This work will be focused on the Temporal Data Management and the Knowledge Acquisition Tool. KeywordsDecision Support-Temporal Information Management-Medical Knowledge Acquisition and Representation

    ABSTRACT: In medical domains, a detailed model of diseases is necessary in order to provide useful explanations about the patient evolution. There are domains, for example Intensive Care Units (ICU), in which the temporal dimension plays an essential role in describing patient evolution over time. The inclusion of the temporal dimension in describing the diseases causal relations increases the problems associated to the so-called knowledge acquisition (KA) bottleneck. A KA tool is presented in this work to overcome these difficulties. This tool is built over the causal and temporal model ontology and the domain ontology, providing graphical wizards to guide the user through the KA process and to specify ontology mappings. Finally, the resulting knowledge base (KB) is physically implemented in Extensible Markup Language (XML) allowing an automatic diffusion of the KB throughout Internet.
