Medical Computer Software: The \'Problem Knowledge Coupler (PKC).\'

\"What
your doctor doesn\'t know could kill you:
  A
computer program that provides vast amounts of information for diagnosing
and treating patients could revolutionize the practice of medicine. So
why won\'t physicians use it?\" ... \"Once the questionnaire is completed,
the doctor clicks on \"primary options.\" The computer goes into its vast
database of medical knowledge -originally compiled by PKC Corp. librarians
and updated every six months on CDs or over the Internet - and matches
up the patient\'s answers with all the known symptoms for various causes
of headaches [or any other health malady].\" (1, 2,
