The 2nd International Workshop on Knowledge Representation for Health Care (KR4HC-2010)

As computerized health-care support systems are rapidly becoming more knowledge intensive, the representation of medical knowledge in a form that enables reasoning is growing in relevance and taking a more central role in the area of Medical Informatics. In order to achieve a successful decision-support and knowledge management approach to medical knowledge representation, the scientific community has to provide efficient representations, technologies, and tools to integrate all the important elements that health care providers work with: electronic health records and health-care information systems, clinical practice guidelines and standardized medical technologies, codification standards, etc.

Synergies to integrate the above mentioned elements and types of knowledge must be sought both in the medical problems (e.g., prevention, diagnosis, therapy, prognosis, etc.) and also in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence technologies (e.g., natural language processing, digital libraries, knowledge representation, knowledge integration and merging, decision support systems, machine learning, e-learning, etc).

The second KR4HC workshop will focus on electronic patient data. After many years of promise, we finally begin to see a widespread deployment of electronic patient records and dossiers.
