Arden Syntax―a language for the representation and processing of clinical knowledge in a standardized way―has already been put into practice in various clinical contexts (e.g., in Vienna, Colorado, Erlangen). Besides its usefulness in clinical routine, the Arden Syntax is also particularly suited to contribute to research projects as well as for use in teaching.
Several universities and university hospitals have already taken advantage of the benefits the Arden Syntax offers for educational and research contexts and purchased Medexter’s ArdenSuite research and teaching license including the ArdenSuite Integrated Development and Test Environment (IDE), the ArdenSuite Server, Server Connector, FHIR Connector, as well as Activiti Extension for the ArdenSuite.
ArdenSuite at FH Joanneum
In Graz, the ArdenSuite departmental license includes Server, IDE, Server Connector, FHIR Connector, and Activiti Extension. Students are currently using the ArdenSuite in a lecture on “Decision Support Systems” in order to develop their own decision support modules and integrate them into clinical routine. The application of the ArdenSuite in research projects with focus on intensive care medicine is scheduled for 2018.
