Access to medical services in rural communities, especially in the developing world, is extremely limited. Medical expert systems can play a significant role in alleviating this problem by providing decision support in the giving of advice on diagnosis, treatment and disease management. This study built a prototype for diabetes, a chronic illness affecting millions across the globe. Preliminary evaluation suggests that such a system could be useful for expanding medical services in rural communities and as an educational tool for unskilled medical staff.
