Description
Description: 
A computer system called “Caseweaver” will be presented that conducts clinical trials in primary care and delivers context-specific clinical evidence at the point of care, in addition to optimizing referrals, integrating evidence with the referral process, and integrating with the GP’s electronic medical record software. A discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of narrative vs ‘executable’ clinical guidelines, and implications for decision support systems, will also be presented.
