Clinical Decision Support

With Logiak, complex clinical decision support systems are created and delivered by clinicians themselves. Evidence-based logic of care is implemented directly by them in Logiak. No programmers are needed to intervene between the doctor and  logic.

This is the best and sometimes it can seem the only way to create such systems.

.. advises on treatment; recommends drugs and dosages; guides counseling on adherence, disclosure, and nutrition; and recommends appropriate follow up.

MSF
MSF eCARE Program

Since 2014 clinicians within MSF have been using Logiak to create and maintain decision support systems within several countries of sub-saharan Africa. The aim of eCARE is:

.. to improve the quality of care for patients and foster the autonomy of frontline health care workers through guided decision-making, evidence-based diagnostics and prescription, enhanced learning processes, and clinical supervision

Decision Support Example

How even very complex logical reasoning can be achieved without programming

Logiak has special relevance for applications which need to use a lot of rule-based knowledge, such as in law or medicine.

A simple example of clinical logic

To show how Logiak is used to create advice-giving systems, look at the text above right.

We will extract some recommendation about iron supplementation in pregnancy, - shown here in simplified form to the right - and we will show in the video how this logic is implemented in Logiak, without programming
In settings where anemia in pregnant women is a severe public health problem, a daily dose of 60mg is recommended

In the first and third trimesters, the Hb threshold for diagnosing anaemia is 110 g/L

In the second trimester, the threshold for diagnosing anemia is 105 g/L

If a woman is diagnosed with anaemia during pregnancy, her daily elemental iron should be increased to 120 mg until her Hb concentration rises to normal (Hb 110 g/L or higher).
