Abstract: Electronic patient records are typically optimised for delivering care to a single patient. They omit significant information that the care team can infer whilst including much of only transient value. By contrast, the CLEF Chronicle is a unified, formal and parsimonious representation of how a patient’s illness and treatments unfold through time. We describe the reconstruction of patient chronicles from clinical records and the subsequent definition and execution of sophisticated clinical queries across populations of chronicles. We also outline how clinical simulations are used to test and refine the chronicle representation. Finally, we discuss a range of engineering and theoretical challenges raised by our work.
