Abstract [en]

There is an obvious need today for distribution of medical information and expert knowledge among health-care providers. The ever-expanding volume of the biomedical knowledge base and the reduced funding in health-care organisations make the task of keeping up-to-date with developments in clinical medicine difficult. Nevertheless, this new knowledge must continually be shared among health-care providers. There is consequently a need for decision and information support in clinical practice.

This thesis describes attempts at using information techniques to meet this information need. In the work addressed in this thesis, a decision and information-support system with the aim of providing geographically distributed expert knowledge has been designed, implemented and assessed with respect to user satisfaction. The system design is based on the integration of rule-based and hypertext knowledge representations to provide efficient access to clinically relevant information and extended explanations to given advice.
