Data obtained from clinical encounters can be harnessed with the power and innovation of information technology (IT). This chapter describes the genesis and evolution of an electronic medical record (EMR) system at the Endocrine and Diabetes Centre. The clinical and biochemical data were captured, and rule-based methods implement to provide calculated values, diagnoses, lifestyle advice and diet prescription. The reliability of the system is established by its being in continual use for nearly 30 years containing data on more than 80,000 subjects with endocrine diseases including diabetes. The authors propose ways in which the existing system can be further developed with additional features.
