Synopsis

This computer-based nomenclature attempts to create an universal environment for the creation of computer programs for acquisition, review, and transmission of medical information independent of language. During the patient interview, the patient describes his own symptoms to the clinician who then interprets and records the results for future analysis. This is the most important part of the examination, and an accurate record of the data from the interview, coupled with a physical exam, is vital to making a diagnosis and establishing a treatment plan. MEDCIN systemizes this diagnostic process, by removing the subjective variables of patient information gathering, allowing for a more consistent patient diagnosis, and more reliable data for research. Through a coding structure of hierarchical inheritance, Medcin accommodates the individual thought processes of the clinician, while remaining structured enough to capture the clinical findings needed for documentation and analysis. It also provides a universal language base for over 50, 000 specific medical findings in French, German and Spanish enabling the user to read patient
