Abstract

Diabetes remains a major challenge in Medicine in the 21st century.Managing diabetes involves not just lifestyle modification but also regular testing to detect any abnormalities that could lead to serious complications.With the presence of automated system, many clinical or pathology laboratories can now process a large number of test orders and generate clinical reports within a short time.Yet, most of these reports do not contain patient-specific interpretative comment that could assist physicians in decision making process for a better management of diabetes.This paper presents the development of an interpretative expert system module named HePTEx that interprets the health profile test report and adds patient-specific comments to the existing clinical reports. It enhanced the information richness of the existing clinical reports.
