    Abstract

    This specification updates a standard representation for storing and organizing the heterogeneous information contained in clinical practice guidelines, intended to facilitate translation of natural-language guideline documents into a format that can be processed by computers. This specification is based on the guideline elements model version 2 (GEM II) created at the Yale Center for Medical Informatics by health services researchers and informatics specialists, and designed to serve as a comprehensive XML-based guideline document representation.
