Semantic rules execution sequence. According to the rule groups in Fig. 8, these groups are executed in a certain order to examine the patient profile and determine a suitable plan. A patient case can be a new case without previous plans or a follow-up case with a previous plan. For new cases, the PER group decides if the patient is symptomatic or asymptomatic.
