Informatics researchers have developed many methods for using computers to utilize knowledge in decision making in the form of clinical decision support systems (CDSSs). These systems can enhance human decision making in the healthcare domain. The knowledge acquisition bottleneck is one of the well-known issues in developing knowledge-based systems such as CDSS. It can be considered as a flow of knowledge from different knowledge sources to the main system. Most existing methods for extracting knowledge from knowledge resources suffer from the lack of a proper mechanism for extracting high-quality knowledge. In this paper, we propose a framework to discover high-quality knowledge by utilizing Semantic Web technologies.
