Building a Library of Eligibility Criteria to Support Design of Clinical Trials [chapter]

Krystyna Milian, Anca Bucur, Frank van Harmelen
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The completion of clinical trial depends on sufficient participant enrollment, which is often difficult due to the restrictiveness of eligibility criteria, and effort required to verify patient eligibility  ...  The paper presents the first steps, a method for automatic comparison of criteria content and the library of structured and ordered eligibility criteria that can be browsed with the fine-grained queries  ...  The consequence of using this relaxation would be inclusion of patients that obtained such treatment for another purpose than breast cancer.  ...
