Solely human-readable health knowledge is a way of the past (i.e. book and journal content). Knowledge can now be represented in computable forms as machine-executable code, allowing for the rapid and scalable delivery of health knowledge to clinicians at the point of care.
According to the Mobilizing Computable Biomedical Knowledge Manifesto, computable biomedical knowledge (CBK) is “the result of an analytic and/or deliberative process about human health, or affecting human health, that is explicit and machine-executable, and therefore can be represented and reasoned upon using logic, formal standards, and mathematical approaches.”
Apervita Chief Informatics and Innovation Officer Dr. Blackford Middleton, MD, MPH, MSc, presented at the 2nd-annual Mobilizing Computable Biomedical Knowledge working meeting in July 2018. Dr. Middleton outlined how Apervita’s ePathway application and delivery framework is advancing the work of CBK by creating pathways for treatment intervention.
