English to Chinese Medical History and Report
Warren S. Goff, DO
This program allows one to ask medical questions in English which are translated into Chinese and spoken using pre-recorded, concatenated Chinese voices: (http://www.moosenose.com/pinyin.zip). Presets are provided covering most of the questions involved in a Review of Systems. The questions can be customized to a particular patient and saved. The patient's responses can be saved and printed also. In addition, questions directed to specific diseases have been provided. I used Google Translate for the presets and Chinese Romanization Converter to convert the tones to numbers.
One may Save or Open Patient Questions and History..
The specific diseases are available above. More may be added in the future.
The report can either be in English, Chinese or both.
When one clicks a topic such as Rheum, the list is populated.
When an item is selected, the question is asked aloud and a response may be Yes, No or Customized. One may also add the question to a customized list.
The customized list appends all selected questions. You may add the questions from any that are displayed in the checked listbox above. These questions can be save and recalled for subsequent patient encounters.
The responses likewise can be recorded, saved and printed.
Adding new questions is tedious but can be done as follows:
** I've just noticed that Google Translate no longer provides Pinyin.
One must add selected questions to the Custom List in order to save them.
The source code is actually included with the compiled version and doesn't require a download.
Source Code VB6.0
If you download the source from Planet-Source Code (above), you will need to first run the project and then manually unzip the voices into a subdirectory in the program directory: \pinyin. These can be downloaded by Clicking Help>Add Voice Files (http://www.moosenose.com/pinyin.zip). The \pinyin directory can be opened by clicking Help>PinYin Directory.
