Fast and efficient diagnosis and treatment of patient's disease is crucial.
It is based on the analysis of a large number of symptoms, signs and laboratory findings which requires a systematic approach.
A group of Slovenian specialists of internal medicine have developed and published diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms.
These have existed for more than twenty years in printed form only which calls for digitization which would significantly speed up the decision-making process, improve cost--effectiveness, speed up medical treatment and decrease number of medical errors.
As a part of the thesis I developed a web application "Algomed" that allows electronic examination and also updating and editing of existing algorithms.
For the development of the application I used software framework MeteorJS which is part of Node.js software environment.
Algomed is a working prototype of an application which can be upgraded and developed to its practical use.
