This book presented a process of analysis, design and prototype implementation of RECTIN recommender system, as a solution to the problem of supporting tinnitus treatment based on Tinnitus Retraining Therapy in a medical facility. Proposed approach in supporting physicians’ diagnosis and treatment decisions addresses scarcity of expert knowledge, time restrictions in today’s medical practice and the need for more efficient evaluation of different treatment methods. Such system can provide accurate support at any time, with full consideration of individual patient profiles, including: demographics, medical history, and tinnitus background.
