While previous work show that healthcare systems have been used in helping healthcare providers in electronic medical record management specifically clinical operations and tracking treatment outcome, there is little sharing of such or even usage of such data across many hospitals in resolving numerous challenges involved in supporting HIV patients. In this research we use JADE to provide an explicit diagnostic framework where decision trees are used to models t emporal and logical flow of clinical problems associated with supporting such patients. We describe the process involved in designing and testing the healthcare system. Several healthcare providers are involved during the design and testing of the healthcare system whereby questionnaires are later used to evaluate the system. Through functionality and usability evaluation we show how the healthcare system adds value to the health providers by eliminating conflict revolving around numerous treatment variable s and enhancing quality of decision while supporting HIV patients. The healthcare providers are pleased with the system with 90% recommending for implementation of the system.
