BDI Personal Medical Assistant Agents: The Case of Trauma Tracking and Alerting

Angelo Croatti, Sara Montagna, Alessandro Ricci, Emiliano Gamberini, Vittorio Albarello, Vanni Agnoletti
Personal assistant agents can have an important role in healthcare as a smart technology to support physicians in their daily work, helping to tackle the increasing complexity of their task environment. In this paper we present and discuss a personal medical assistant agent technology for trauma documentation and management, based on the Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) architecture. The purpose of the personal assistant agent is twofold: to assist the Trauma Team in doing precision tracking during a trauma resuscitation, so as to (automatically) produce an accurate documentation of the trauma, and to generate alerts at real-time, to be eventually displayed either on smart-glasses or room-display.
