Title: APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS IN A MEDICAL SETTING
Abstract:
Apparatus and methods are described for performing a differential diagnosis of a patient, including, using a computer processor (18), in a machine-learning stage, receiving data relating to a plurality of patients, receiving conditions that respective patients are diagnosed as having, and thereby determining correlations between respective patient parameters and the conditions that patients are diagnosed as having. In a patient-diagnosis stage, one or more conditions that a given patient is suspected of having are determined. Based at least partially upon the correlations determined during the machine-learning stage and the conditions that the given patient is suspected of having, a set of questions to ask the patient is determined such that determining that the patient has one of the conditions with a likelihood that passes a threshold likelihood may be achieved with a minimum number of questions being asked. Other applications are also described.
