Abstract

Inadequate response and bad decisions taken by mobile physicians may lead to bad consequences threatening rescued people lives. Moreover, there are growing information that overload physicians when facing urgent cases. In order to facilitate the on road decision making for the mobile physicians, we propose a clinical decision support system based on an ontology driven approach for effective emergency management that allows finding out as quickly as possible the needed medical resources and reserves the most suitable health care institutions according to the patient state. Specifically, this work permits to localize rapidly the closets health care institution to the emergency scene, to find out the needed medical resources to deal with the patient first diagnosis, to match the localized health care institutions that contain the necessary medical resources to fulfil the patient determined needs, and to rank medical institutions, according to urgent case requirements, in order to allow the mobile physician to perform the adequate choice of one of them.
