Abstract: Artificial Neural Network (AAN) has gained enormous popularity over the last one and half decades owing to its vast application in industry and research. The objective of this research work is to use ANN-based method to solve diagnosis problem in healthcare delivery, providing accurate electronic diagnosis and statistical analysis for telemedicine applications. The result showed that the software tool was able to identify 82% (45 out of 55 cases) as compared with medical test, 89% (49 out of 55) as compared with the doctors’ diagnosis.
