Clinical practice guidelines have been designed to reduce uncertainty in the medical decision making in order to improve medical care and reduce costs. A way to facilitate and formalize this task is by translating it into the computers domain. This paper introduces a validator of patient data for clinical practice guidelines as part of a decision support system. So, the clinical staff can introduce patient data for a particular disease, and the system is able to find inconsistencies in the application of clinical practice guideline for such disease.
