Ligne de Vie
The ACI Ligne de Vie project in collaboration with the SARL Nautilus and SPIM (Service de Santé Publique et d'Informatique médicale de la Faculté de Médecine Broussais-Hôtel Dieu) aims at building a knowledge management tool for a health care network, so as to ensure continuity of healthcares and co-operative work in such a health care network.
The contribution of the Acacia team consisted of:
Translation of a medical database (Nautilus) into a structured ontology, represented in RDF(S) and enabling to browse this ontology through Corese and thus check its consistency. This approach is interesting for a company having a database available and wishing to extract from this database the elements enabling to build a structured ontology, represented in a semantic Web standard language such as RDFS.
Method for creating (possibly multi-viewpoints) annotations
Specifications and implementation of a collaborative tool (virtual staff)
Our main contribution this year was the implementation in Java of a collaborative tool, called "Virtual Staff", enabling to visualize the collective reasoning of the actors of a health care network for complex diagnostic and therapeutic decisions(see section 6.1.10). Figure 6 shows the graphical interface of the prototype.
