K-Rep is an object-oriented knowledge representation system based on description logic [Woods and Schmolze, 1992]. K-Rep provides a language to express descriptions (e.g., of medical concepts such as drugs, treatments, and diseases), inference mechanisms for reasoning about descriptions and their relationship to one another, and considerable supporting infrastructure. This paper presents an overview of K-Rep’s system architecture, which has been motivated in part by the needs of several applications in the area of clinical information systems.
