Health Level Seven Arden Syntax for Medical Logic Systems, Edition 3.0

DESCRIPTION

The Arden Syntax for Medical Logic Systems Version 3.0 is the latest version of a formalism for clinical knowledge representation that can be used by clinicians, knowledge engineers, administrators and others to implement clinical decision support (CDS) solutions to help improve the quality and safety of care. Arden Syntax can be used to create a knowledge base for CDS systems that, when coupled with patient data, can generate patient-specific CDS interventions for improving patient care. The key change in Version 3.0 over Version 2.10 is inclusion of FHIR as a standard data model for Arden Syntax. This will allow executable knowledge in the form of Medical Logic Modules (MLMs) to be shared more easily by reducing the need to translate references to local data in MLMs.
