English abstract:
In recent years, sophisticated visualization methods have been developed to support both, the logical structure and the time-oriented
aspects of computer-executable clinical treatment plans. However, visualizing the effects of applying treatment plans as well as supporting the exploration of effects on the patientīs condition are still largely unresolved tasks.
To fill this gap, we have developed a prototype that enhances known visualization methods to communicate the processes of treatment plan application together with their effects on a patientīs condition in an easily understandable way. Our prototype combines the advantages of enhanced visual recognition of patterns with traditional information of parametersī development. Thus, it provides means (1) to assess success or failure of previously applied treatment plans, (2) to explore the effects of each applied clinical action on the patientīs condition, and (3) to identify sub-optimal treatment choices. These means help physicians to optimize their treatment choices and enable developers of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to investigate and readjust these treatment plans.
