Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9904043A1] Automatic test tracking analysis and reporting are provided by an automated process and computer system, which can provide a global communications network, for the convenience of patients, health care providers and public health agencies to lower health care costs. Advantageously, the speedy accurate process and system can be used to detect many types of infectious diseases, chronic diseases, genetic diseases, nutritional deficiency, environmental and general health problems, fertility, mental disorders, drug abuse, allergies, etc., as well as to automatically administer non-invasive tests, such as vision tests, hearing tests, and cognitive function tests to monitor the progress of Alzheimer's disease. Samples to be tested can be conveniently collected by the patient or by others and placed in a test kit at the patient's home or other location remote from a medical facility. The sample can be tested in a laboratory or at the patient home or other remote site. The test results and patient profile medical history can be inputted into the system or network and compared with data bases of diseases, disorders, treatments, care plans, nutritional supplements, and medicine. The process and system can transmit an analysis and proposed treatment to the patient's physician or health care provider for approval or change before the test report and recommended medicine and treatment are sent to the patient. The process and system are also useful for automatic test tracking and reporting to public health organizations.
