Decision support application

Within DESSEV Erasmus+ project was developed the decision support system for maritime decision makers in order to give some indications in the case of epidemic outbreak.

DESSEV App is the result of the DESSEV Erasmus+ cooperation partnership project in vocational education and training. The aim of the project is to design and develop the decision support system for maritime management personnel in order to give some indications in the case of epidemic outbreak.
The application predicts possible diseases(s) a patient may have based on given symptoms. The application`s prediction models were built using Dessev’s knowledge base, compiled from medical case studies and medical knowledge.
At least four of all symptoms should be selected to get the information about the disease(s) you may consider in your evaluation of the case. Be aware that in some cases four symptoms can give a misleading prediction. Point out all the symptoms you have, to gain a more reliable prediction.
