Todays doctors require decision support aids to help them copewith the management of increasing amounts of medical informationrecords, research advances, new drugs, make appropriate choices andeven to substitute in an experts absence. Such aids exist in the formof medical expert systems, which are complex computer programs thatemulate clinical reasoning. Expert systems consist of a knowledge basein which doctors expertise is encoded and an inferenceengine which manipulates that knowledge. A number of successfuldiagnostic, management and combined systems are in use but these are asmall fraction of the total available. Preventing wider usage aredifficulties in evaluation as well as in response time. Significantimprovements in resource management can be obtained by the deployment ofmedical expert systems, so they are predicted to influence profoundlythe future of health care in general practice and hospitals alike.
