Abstract: Medical Decision Support System (MDSS) links the patient information to promising diagnostic and treatment paths. It can be built either as Knowledge-based system or Learning-based system. Knowledge-based systems are human-engineered maps from best medical practices and patient data will be recommended. Learning-based systems derive the mapping techniques from data mining, statistical approaches and machine learning techniques. An Integrated decision support system integrates both Knowledge-based and Learning-based systems to provide a robust solution to the information challenge in the presence of partial information. In this work, we design a framework and concrete implementation of Integrated Medical Decision Support System to assist the Doctors in clinical decisions regarding the prescription of drugs. It uses the Knowledge base for prescribing the drugs to the patients, however if the available data is partial it employs the machine learning techniques to answer the query. It is suitable for many different healthcare settings and many different users. The framework is query-based and it can be adapted for use with many different end-user interfaces.
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Learning based Systems, Knowledge based Systems.
