Evidence Based N{edicine has become a popular approach to medica! decision making. It is a method of assisting clinical decision making by using the most relevant research evidence to answer the clinical question. First formally described in 1992, the method offered the chance of improving the quality of clinical care by encouraging rigorous appraisal of new evidence (Thomas KB, 1974). Complete Blood Count is one of the most commonly ordered blood test that could be done within minutes and is mostly used as a basis for future testing. (Siamak T. Nabili) Therefore CBC is a great way to quickly diagnose a patient and later on, use evidence via EBM to further diagnose the patient. This project will answer the problem of general practitioners needing a system to annr.rofclrr nrnr{rr^o o minimioazl lic+ nf rncoi}rla ;liooaocc oc ntriaLlv onrl oc oaarrrotcl., 4VVUr OrVrJ Pr VUUVV Cl rllllrlrrlr-vu rr9f \rr lr\rJsrurv \rrow4irwJ (rr) YurvNJ aur\l (ait clA/wur4lvry as possible through CBC test result data. The system would then help general practitioners overcome the problem with EBM by assisting them in browsing through the vast amount of evidence effectively and feasibly in order to make a quick decision.

Knowledge on CBC results and blood disorders are also required to form an algorithm that takes in all factors into producing a list of probable diseases. Ways of indexing and evaluating evidences are needed for producing a system that assists in EBM. The keyword filtering concept is used to allow general practitioner to browse through evidence quickly and capture tacit knowledge on evidence browsing. Methodology used for the project is the spiral development model where the project will be broken down into 3 parts and built step by step. A fully developed prototype proposed by this projeot would promise a quick and easy way to diagnose patients with probable hematological disorders based on CBC test results and allow general practitioners to efficiently and feasibly browse through evidence to make a decision.
