    The topics discussed in this chapter relate to formal methods for knowledge representation and reasoning that are gaining momentum through international efforts in many spheres, including health care. Although these methods have not yet had much impact on clinical decision support as currently implemented and deployed, it is expected that they will have growing importance in coming years, driven by the need to bring together the many disparate efforts and perspectives that require more adaptable, flexible, and robust methodologies.
