Abstract

In the area of Medical Informatics, there is an increasing realization that temporal information plays a crucial role, so that suitable database models and query languages are needed to store and support it. In this paper we show that current approaches developed within the database field have some limitations even from the point of view of the data model, so that an important class of temporal medical data cannot be properly represented. We propose a new three-sorted model and a query language that overcome such limitations.
