Siegfried: System for Interactive Electronic Guidelines with Feedback and Resources for Instructional and Educational Development.
The proliferation of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) has necessitated computerized solutions for guideline distribution and implementation. In this paper we describe a Web-based system that interactively presents CPGs at the point of care. Our system, known as Siegfried, provides a generalized solution for implementing CPGs by maintaining the guideline knowledge base separate from the application that presents the guidelines. As a result of this design, new CPGs can be easily added and existing CPGs can be expeditiously modified without additional programming. This system also solicits feedback from users regarding guideline recommendations and provides hypertext links to relevant Web-based instructional and educational resources.
