An important application of both data abstraction and
plan execution is the execution of clinical guidelines and protocols
(CGP), both to validate them against a large set of test cases and to
provide decision support at the point of care. CGPs can be represented
and executed as a hierarchy of skeletal plans. To bridge the
gap between low-level data and high-level concepts in the CGP, intelligent
temporal data abstraction must be integrated with plan execution.
In this paper we describe a solution to this challenge which was
implemented as part of the European project Protocure II to improve
the quality of CGPs. They are translated to the high-level plan representation
language Asbru which again is compiled into a network of
abstraction modules by the system. Then this network performs the
content of the plans triggered by the arriving patient data.
By this, we seamlessly integrate the synchronisation of guideline
execution with observed patient state, complex temporal abstractions
and execution of complex plans without requiring the user to handle
the low-level details. Instead, user-friendly tools are used to create
and maintain the guideline.
