Abstract

Changing trends and adoption of information and communication technology (ICT) in healthcare settings have equipped modern healthcare providers a method to resolve their day to day challenges in enhancing quality decision making and patient care. Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death globally. The control and prevention of it is largely depends on instant access and availability of patients information and domain knowledge to the clinicians. Unavailability or delay in receiving this information leads to medical error, unnecessary complications and suffering to the patient. As an important application of Information and communication technology, Clinical Decision Support System supports the clinicians in providing easy and instant access of accurate, complete and adequate patient’s information and domain knowledge for quality decision making, reducing medical errors and promoting evidence based practice. This paper focuses on the design, development and implementation of a Novel Knowledge Based Decision Support System model in breast cancer treatment for improving the accessibility of domain specific clinical data for faster and more efficient use.
