This research presents a conceptual procedure for characterizing the
essential nature of the diagnostic reasoning process. This computerization of the medical neurological section of the University College Hospital Ibadan in Nigeria leads to effectiveness and efficiency of the existing medical diagnosing process. The main purpose of this project is to design a computerized brain diagnosing system that would be used in carrying out the daily diagnosing activity in the clinic. The developed computerized system has numerous advantages over manual operation which is very tedious and time consuming. As part of the research method, a set of clinical and ward observations were personally made confirming that the computerized system is prompt, less prone to errors and efficient. This work deals mainly with the analysis of the manual system and the computerization of the newly design system. Moreover, it explains how operations are carried out on records and use of data encryption method so as to ensure confidentiality in the use of the software.
