The unique philosophy, diagnosis, and treatment methods of Chinese Medicine (CM) suggest that Health Informatics developments in this domain could benefit by adopting a more suitable synthesis, specifically, incorporating Hegelian and Kantian inquiring systems with the support from Singerian, Lockean, and Leibnizian inquiring systems, and key concepts of Knowledge Management. Directed by qualitative methodology with Case Study and Design Science methods, the specific CM inquiring system, a Patient Management System (PMS) prototype, was constructed. It is anticipated that this experiment provides suggestions and reference to Health Informatics implementations in CM. This paper focuses on the design and building of the PMS.
