Summary The "information explosion" in recent decades has made it impossible for practicing physicians (even specialists) to keep up with all the information which would be potentially useful in making optimal clinical judgements. As a result, it's not surprising that empirical studies have demonstrated that physicians do not always make optimal decisions. Medical Expert systems are intended to support (not replace) physicians and healthcare providers in their goal to provide consistently optimal healthcare to every patient. Knowledge Engineering in Health Informatics is a guide to the creation of such systems. The core material for courses such as Medical Knowledge Engineering and Expert System Development, it allows non-experts (assisted by computer) to make diagnostic decisions with the precision and accuracy of medical experts.
