Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. DESIREE is a European project which aims at developing web-based services for the management of primary breast cancer by multidisciplinary breast units (BUs). We describe the guideline-based decision support system (GL-DSS) of the project. Various breast cancer clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) have been selected to be concurrently applied to provide state-of-the-art patient-specific recommendations. The aim is to reconcile CPG recommendations with the objective of complementarity to enlarge the number of clinical situations covered by the GL-DSS. Input and output data exchange with the GL-DSS is performed using FHIR. We used a knowledge model of the domain as an ontology on which relies the reasoning process performed by rules that encode the selected CPGs. Semantic web tools were used, notably the Euler/EYE inference engine, to implement the GL-DSS. "Rainbow boxes" are a synthetic tabular display used to visualize the inferred recommendations.
