Design of an Expert Medication System using CLIPS

Authors : J.G. Vlachogiannis and D. Palla

Abstract: Nowadays, the sector of artificial intelligence has bred a large number of ingenious expert system applications, which elaborately take advantage of the combination of hardware and software with the appropriate designing tools. The expert system designed in this project selects the appropriate prescription taking into consideration the medical record of the patient and possible side effects of the proposed medication according to the results of the antibiogram and other related tests. The designing tool used is the CLIPS (C Language Integrated Production System) a pioneering expert systems language developed in NASA and NRCC. CLIPS language is used due to its numerous capabilities; moreover, it is flexible, expandable and inexpensive. Initially, the structures of the facts are created using the deftemplate tool and then the records of these facts with the use of the deffacts CLIPS tool. Afterwards, rules, that form the medication expert system, are generated by means of defrule tool. The medication expert system is a novel assistance for the physician as well as flexible and adaptable to any medical specialty.
