The knowledge authoring tool: an XML-based knowledge acquisition environment.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

As part of an enterprise effort to develop new clinical information systems at Intermountain Health Care, we are developing a Knowledge Authoring Tool that facilitates the development of medical knowledge. At present, users of the application can compose order sets and other clinical knowledge documents based upon XML schemas. The flexible nature of the application allows for the authoring of new types of documents once an XML schema and accompanying web form have been developed and stored in a shared repository. The need for a knowledge acquisition tool stems largely from the desire for medical practitioners to be able to write their own content for clinical use. We hypothesize that knowledge content for clinical use can be successfully implemented around XML-based document frameworks containing structured and coded knowledge.
