Abstract: We describe approaches to electronic guideline representation and classify them into 3 groups: rule-based, decision analysis, markup, and multi-step guidelines modeled as a hierarchical set of nested guideline tasks. We also describe the relationships and influences among the various representation methods and present current trends and future directions in the field of electronic guideline representation.
