Many decision systems are based on a hierarchical approach, enriching the known context used to finally choose the right potential action. Designing the scheme for browsing the clinical guidelines is a task devoted to expert in infectious diseases. Designing the data model is a task devoted to the expert in data modeling. As a consequence, browsing scheme and data model generally differ in terms of abstraction levels. While the browsing scheme proposes to navigate into depth, the data model stays flat. We propose here a novel method to design in parallel the browsing scheme and the data model so that both of them reflect the different abstraction levels in decision process.
