Abstract:

Clinical guidelines and protocols are used to aid decision making in health care. This paper
presents a modelbased approach to the development of decision support systems for clinical
guidelines. The guidelines are modelled using the UML State chart language and the final
system is automatically generated using an automated model transformation. Our approach is
illustrated with a Spanish clinical guideline developed on the basis of a guideline published by
the well-known National Guideline Clearing House (NGC).
