A Probabilistic Method for Multiple-Patient Temporal Abstraction

Michael Ramati, Yuval Shahar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Several systems have been designed to reason about longitudinal patient data in terms of abstract, clinically meaningful concepts derived from raw time-stamped clinical data. All approaches had to some degree severe limitations in their treatment of incompleteness and uncertainty that typically underlie the raw data, on which the temporal reasoning is performed, and have generally narrowed their interest to a single subject. We have designed a new probability-oriented
methodology to overcome these conceptual and computational limitations. The new method includes also a practical parallel computational model that is geared specifically for implementing our probabilistic approach in the case of abstraction of a large number of electronic medical records.
