Abstract: Hospitalised patients suffering from secondary illnesses that require daily medication typically need personalised treatment. Although clinical guidelines were designed considering those circumstances, existing decision-support features fail in assimilating detailed relevant patient information, which opens up opportunities for systems capable of performing a real-time evaluation of such data against existing knowledge and providing recommendations during clinical treatments. In this paper, we present a proposal for a new feature to integrate with electronic health record (EHR) systems that enriches the health treatment process by automatically extracting information from patient medical notes and aggregating it in clinical protocols. Our goal is to leverage the historical component of the patient trajectory to improve clinical decision support systems performance.
