Standard representations of rules such as warnings if attempting to prescribe digoxin for a patient with a low potassium level), • Care planning and pathways (e.g. End of Life Care pathway for implementation in Healthcare Systems), • Clinical content standards (e.g. Academy of Medical Royal Colleges record standards, The Discharge Summary Standard developed by the Royal College of Physicians).
