Use of knowledge-based decision support systems in medicine may improve the quality of medical care. We have executed several projects at UIA involving semantic web technologies like OWL; SPARQL and Jena; the application area has often been E-health; among these projects are two recent master student projects investigating the use of OWL and SPARQL to realize two different decision support systems. One project concerned monitoring vital signs of a patient estimating the state of the patient using a score system; recommendations based on score and additional rules were given. The other project defined an ontology storing medical patient information; with focus on diabetes and recommendations for diabetes patients; recommendations could be retrieved by querying the ontology. The projects used the Protégé framework when doing the development; this implied limitations that made the development cumbersome. The paper proposes another approach based on the Jena framework. The projects are analyzed in regard to technology; extensions and alternative solutions are discussed and proposed. The paper describes and recommends technology that may be used to build an advance medical knowledge-based decision support system.
