DMTO-based CDSS for diabetes treatment. This figure is the DMTO within the CDSS context. First, knowledge engineers use ontology editors and rule editors to create DMTO in OWL 2 and SWRL formats, respectively. This ontology can be used as a knowledge base for a distributed and semantically intelligent CDSS. Secondly, physicians can interact directly or indirectly with the CDSS through an EHR system. The physician uses the patient profile to query DMTO, which returns a suitable individualized treatment plan. So, DMTO is a core component of an intelligent CDSS
